A man who entered a north Madison home through a garage window early Thursday was charged with burglary, police said.

Madison police responded to a report of a burglary in progress on Nobel Lane at 2:49 a.m.

A resident discovered a man in the breezeway of her home and called police. The burglar fled, and it was determined he had gained entry through a garage window.

The resident told police the interior of her car had been rifled through. She was able to provide police with information on the burglar, and officers found the alleged intruder a short time later.

Clayton M. Causey, 29, of Madison, was arrested on suspicion of burglary.
