Police: 13-year-old boy caught burglarizing neighbor's house

A 13-year-old boy was arrested Wednesday morning after police say he burglarized his neighbor's home.

Police received a call from a resident on Stahlheber Road at about 7:20 a.m. Wednesday morning. The woman claimed she was in bed with her three children when she was awakened by a noise in her home. When she rolled over, she saw the teen standing in the hallway. He fled the residence through a window.

The woman identified the suspect as her neighbor, so a search was conducted at his residence, but he was not located.

A short time later, deputies responded to Wilson Middle School in Hamilton, where the 13-year-old suspect was located and taken into custody.

The teen was taken to the Butler County Juvenile Detention Center, charged with burglary.
