WARREN — A 36-year-old man from New York was arrested following a burglary in Warren yesterday.
Authorities were notified by a homeowner that someone was inside his home at around 8:00 a.m.
The homeowner told police that he was currently out of state and could see the unknown individual on his video surveillance system.
Police responded and made entry into the home, confirming someone had recently been inside.
Along with several other pieces of evidence, a note was left by the suspect who had fled, apologizing for the break-in.
A short time later, police made contact with a male walking on Route 100 near the home and identified the man verbally as Silas Smith of Saranac, NY.
Police say they were aware that Smith was recently filed as a missing person and was able to connect Smith to the break-in.
Smith was taken into custody for burglary and possession of the stolen property and transported to the Middlesex State Police barracks for processing.
He was then transported to the Washington County Superior Court in Barre for arraignment.
