Milwaukee St.


A Milwaukee Street resident, working remotely at home, called for police Tuesday afternoon after watching a would-be burglar throw a brick through a back window of his house. He said the suspect must have decided he could not make entry due to jagged glass, because the stranger next began kicking in a backdoor. Police arrived to find Jimmy A. Clark, age 62, still in on the victim's property. He was carrying a bag containing a clock. It turned out to be an anniversary gift the victim had ordered for his wife. The clock had been in a box that was just delivered, and was on the victim's front step. Clark is also a suspect in other recent break-ins. He was taken to jail on tentative charges of burglary, theft, criminal damage to property, and bail jumping.
