Home Surveillance System Catches Burglar Red Handed

The following was provided by the _. It does not indicate a conviction: 

A Peekskill homeowner noticed items had been disappearing from inside his home in the last several weeks so he installed a video surveillance system, police said. On April 24 around 1 p.m., while the resident was monitoring the video, he saw an individual in his Fairlawn Ave. home. Police responded to his call and located 19-year-old Pleasantville resident Jordan Carty exiting from the back of the house. Police say he was in possession of a bag of jewelry that they later learned was stolen from inside.

Carty was charged with second-degree burglary, a felony offense, and taken into custody without incident. He was remanded to the Westchester County Jail following his arraignment.
