Police arrested a juvenile male after he broke into a house on Adam Avenue and stole several items.
Lawrence Police Sgt. Kirk Fultz said a woman called police about 11:00 a.m. Sunday after hearing loud banging on her front and back doors. While she was on the phone with police upstairs, the suspect pried open a sliding glass door in the back of the house and took a laptop computer, purse and wallet from downstairs.
The suspect exited the house when police arrived and ran into a neighboring residence. Fultz said the juvenile did not live at the home, but he was staying there at the time. The suspect was apprehended and confessed to the break-in. He was arrested for felony theft, aggravated burglary and criminal damage.
Police returned the items to the resident, who was unharmed during the incident.
