Elyria – An Elyria man was arrested early Wednesday morning after he broke into a home on Yale Ave and attempted to walk out with a laptop under his arm.
The homeowner told Police she was sleeping on the couch in the living room when a something woke her up and she saw the stranger in her house. The man asked her where John was, she thought he said her son’s name which sounds the same, and so she went and woke him up. The suspect then started walking out with a laptop under his arm when the resident told him to put it back. The man placed it on the counter and then walked out of the house.
As Officers began arriving in the area they received reports of a male matching the description of the suspect in the back yard on Miami Ave. Police surrounded the area and spotted the suspect who ran after he was ordered to stop by Police.
After a foot chase through the neighborhood the suspect was captured in a back yard. Police searched the man, later identified as 37 year old Mark Streets of Denison Ave in Elyria, and found a camera on him belonging to the homeowner on Yale.
Streets was charged with Burglary.
