DARIEN, Conn. -- Police entered a residence on Leroy Avenue in Darien through an unlocked front door while a burglary was underway and apprehended a suspect, according to the Darien Times.

The incident took place Dec. 15, when police responded to a burglar alarm, the article says.

Police officers identified themselves and took out their guns, then worked their way in the direction of the staircase to the second floor. At the top, officers saw the alleged burglar's legs and demanded the person descend the stairs, the article says.

The person instead went further into the second floor. Two officers went after the person who reportedly gave up upon being confronted, the article says.

The man was found to have $10,000 worth of valuables, reports the Darien Times.
