A 50-year-old man surprised a teen trying to pry open his patio door Monday morning, officials say.

The Madison teen ran away from the Mesa Court residence but was later arrested by police, according to a release.

Police say they searched the teen’s home and found several items that had been stolen during a burglary early this month.

The suspect was arrested for burglary, possession of tools used for a burglary and receiving stolen property, according to police.
