Connecticut State Police said in a news release that Dylan Fellows was arrested on burglary and criminal mischief charges for breaking into a home in Norfolk on June 8.

Police said they were initially called to the house for an active burglary and found that someone had broken a window to get inside, WTNH reported.

In court, prosecutors said that Fellows ran when the homeowner came into the kitchen and turned on a light after hearing a noise, the Republican American reported.

Police said they found tools, including a hammer and crowbar at the scene. Police told the Journal Inquirer that Fellows had taken the tools from the home’s garage.

The homeowners had a security camera installed, which captured the suspect on video. They posted the video on Facebook, which police said led to identifying Fellows as the suspect.

Police said they found Fellows, who is from New York, walking along a road in Norfolk, WFSB reported.

Police told the Republican American that Fellows is under investigation for another break-in and that the backpack he was carrying when he was arrested contained more than $900 and another person’s checkbook.
