15-year-old in custody suspected of daytime burglary

MADISON, Wis. - A tip from a citizen led police to take a 15-year-old into custody Tuesday afternoon, according to a news release.

The Madison Police Department said a woman was driving past a home on the 3700 block of School Road at 2:17 p.m. when she saw three teenagers acting suspiciously pushing in a rear window. She called 911. As officers arrived, the suspected burglars ran in different directions.

Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain said officers caught a 15-year-old Madison boy and took him to the Juvenile Reception Center. Officers found a window screen had been cut.

"Thanks to the quick actions of the passing motorist, nothing was taken from the home," DeSpain said.

The teen was arrested on suspicion of burglary.
