Man arrested in burglary attempt

A 22-year-old Trammell Walk man was arrested shortly after he allegedly tried to burglarize a house in the 100 block of Roma Avenue about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Robby Burnett, who allegedly fled through the back yard of the house, was arrested a short time later on Edison Street. Police who had responded to a burglary in progress call at the Roma Avenue home reportedly called out to Burnett when he was spotted in the back yard there, only to see him flee. He was ultimately charged with third-degree attempted burglary, attempted petit larceny, obstructing governmental administration and fourth-degree criminal mischief.
