An Aberdeen homeowner called police yesterday after finding someone in their home that didn’t belong. Aberdeen Police Captain John Green tells us they were called to a home in the 1100 block of East 2nd Street on March 11th at 12:59 A.M. on the report of an interrupted burglary.
Responding officers were informed that the resident was reporting the back door to the house being open and a person inside who was not known to the owner.
The Aberdeen Officers began searching the inside of the home. The officers saw that the back door was now closed and locked.
During the search the officers located a 23 year old Aberdeen male crouching on a landing inside the house. The owner of the home told the officers he did not know the male suspect. The suspect was taken into custody at that time.
Items were located inside the home that the owner told the police did not belong to him and must of been brought there by the suspect.
The suspect was transported to the City of Aberdeen jail and booked on the charges of residential burglary.
The investigation is continuing.
