FMPD officers arrived on the scene and were flagged down by a neighbor who stated the suspect was still in the back yard. Officers secured the area and then heard a crash from the back of the house. They discovered that the back slider had been completely shattered and that forced entry to the home had occurred. The suspect fled on foot traveling west on Alhambra to McGregor Bouvard with officers in pursuit where he was taken into custody.

The suspect was later identified Lewis Ladson (DOB 4/6/2002) and upon conducting a search officers found jewelry and other items on his person which had been taken from the residence.
