Police are searching for man about 25 years old who was discovered inside a home in the 4500 block of Grove Drive.
According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Susan Hadl, a Lawrence man's dog barked at 11:45 p.m. Wednesday to alert him to something wrong outside of his bedroom. The man encountered a white man in a dark hoodie and dark shorts crouching behind the resident's living room furniture. The resident proceeded to engage the intruder in conversation while his wife called 911 in the bedroom.
Hadl said the suspect left the house and traveled westbound, and there were likely more people involved in the foiled burglary. The intruder had reportedly gathered numerous items to steal, so Hadl said he either had an accomplice or a vehicle close by waiting.
