A Garnerville man has been arrested after he tried breaking into a Stony Point home, according to authorities.
Police say Jeffrey Ramirez, 20, smashed the glass of a back door, waking up the elderly man inside.
Officers showed up within two minutes of the break-in, and say they caught Ramirez in the backyard after he ran into a fence.
He’s charged with burglary and criminal mischief among other charges.
Detectives are looking into whether Ramirez has been involved in other break-ins in the neighborhood
