53-year-old Thomas Edward Kerry is behind bars after Wheeling Police say he climbed through the window of a home on McColloch Street on Monday night.
When police arrived on the scene around 10:20 p.m., a woman was reportedly standing outside waving her arms frantically and pointing southbound.
Police say the woman told them a man had broken into her house on the 1000 block and then took off south on McColloch.
Officers found Kerry walking down McColloch Street and ordered him to stop several times before he complied.
After further investigation, police arrested Kerry. He was taken to the Northern Regional Jail, pending an arraignment on the burglary charge.
