Juvenile Burglar Caught In The Act Early Saturday Morning

A Jefferson woman called police on Saturday, saying her husband was in an altercation with an intruder. At approximately 4:10 a.m., a Jefferson Police Officer responded to the 500 block of Hickory Lane and learned the man had been struggling with a 17-year-old male he found in their garage. The juvenile was arrested and charged with second-degree burglary, a class C felony. Authorities believe the suspect was also involved in a burglary at the same address on April 6. That incident remains under investigation.
