DPD officers (uniform and covert), responding to a 911 call from a neighbor, caught a burglar in the act of breaking into a home at 5254 Miller @ Laneri at approximately 10am this Thursday morning.
Details are pending a police report being issued. We can only speculate that the presence of covert officers indicates an effort to catch someone responsible for recent burglaries in the area.
