Blasdell Police responding to a 911 call saw a man running from the scene of a burglary at a South Park Avenue home.
Police said when Officer William Leibold answered the call of a burglary in progress last Thursday, the suspect ran away, leaving his vehicle, which contained the proceeds of the burglary.
Darrell Mack, 35, was tracked to an address in Lackawanna and taken into custody with the assistance of Hamburg and Lackawanna police. He was charged with burglary and larceny and taken to the Erie County Holding Center.
Mack, who has multiple felony convictions, is on parole for first-degree robbery.
