A Salina woman awakens to hear a stranger breaking into her home and calls police.
Captain Mike Sweeney tells KSAL News that officers were sent to a home in the 2000 block of Meadowlark Lane early Friday morning around 1:30am.
As police arrived they saw 25-year-old Juan Bustamante-Espinoza running through the backyard and quickly apprehended him.
Sweeney says he’ll face charges of aggravated burglary and theft for allegedly shoving cereal and milk, plus a bowl and spoon into his backpack before bolting from the woman’s kitchen.
The 26-year-old woman and two young children were not hurt in the incident.
