Around 10:30 a.m., a resident in the 1100 block of Nancy Drive reported seeing a suspicious person enter a neighbor’s backyard.

When police arrived, they established a perimeter and knocked on the door of the home to identify themselves. A short time later, a teen jumped from a window and ran.

Police chased the teen for about one block before apprehending him. The witness who called 911 positively identified the teen as the person who entered the home.

When police searched the teen, they recovered jewelry and other property taken from the victim’s home.

Denzell Devon Flowers, 19, was charged with Breaking and Entering, Felony Larceny, and Resisting Arrest.

There was another burglary on this same street Tuesday, May 31. In that case, the suspect entered an unlocked door and walked away with several electronics.

If you have any information about either of these cases, call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
