A New Glarus man was arrested after an investigation into a burglary at a home in the town of Montrose Monday morning.

The Dane County Sheriff’s Office said deputies were called to 6382 Sun Valley Parkway at 9:15 a.m. after a man at the home investigated a noise in his basement and discovered a burglar. The burglar fled out the same back door that he used to gain entry, authorities said.

The man gave the 911 dispatcher a detailed description of the burglar and his 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe, according to deputies. A deputy located the SUV on Paoli Road and made a traffic stop.

Gregory Grinder, 37, was arrested on suspicion of burglary.
