Arlington Police said they found an alleged intruder sitting on the roof of a home she’d allegedly broken into Friday night.
Police said Briana Buckley, 20, of Arlington, was burglarizing a two-story home on Park Ave. Friday about 5:20 p.m. when the resident returned home and found her attempting to hide in an upstairs bedroom.
When the resident confronted Buckley, she attempted to run out the door. But the man stopped her so she tried to escape out the bedroom window, according to a police report.
The resident called police and said a burglar fled out a second-floor window to the roof of his home and was stuck too high on the roof to get down.
When Arlington Police arrive, they found Buckley still sitting on the roof, and went up to the second floor of the home before Buckley climbed back inside and was placed in handcuffs, police said.
The resident told police that he had gone to a veterinarian office and when he returned home he noticed his side doors were open and then noticed someone had broken a window to unlock and open the door. When a neighbor reported that he’d seen a woman walk from a backyard on Florence Avenue to the Park Avenue home, police responded to Florence Avenue, where they found another home that had broken windows and had been ransacked, according to the police report
Inside the Park Avenue home, Arlington Police said they found a bag that contained prescription drugs that Buckley allegedly took from the home on Florence Avenue.
In an interview at the Arlington Police Station, Buckley allegedly told police that she broke into two homes and said she “needed money for things” but would not say why. She said she had become scared in the Park Avenue home when the resident tried to stop her from fleeing the house, so she went out the window and sat on the roof until police arrived, according to the police report.
She was charged with receiving stolen property over $250, and two counts of breaking and entering.
