A man was arrested after he allegedly entered a garage at a Leavenworth residence and began looking through vehicles, a police spokesman said.

The incident was reported at 1:24 a.m. Tuesday in the 1400 block of Third Avenue.

The suspect allegedly had entered an attached garage and was going through vehicles, presumably looking for items to steal, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

The suspect apparently had been able to enter the garage after a door was left open.

The homeowner contacted the police.

“The suspect left the residence prior to our arrival,” Nicodemus said.

Police located a man matching a description of the suspect. He was walking in the 700 block of Chestnut Street.

Nicodemus said police were able to identify the 25-year-old man as the suspect through home security video footage. Nicodemus said there also was an admission by the suspect.

The man was arrested for allegations for aggravated burglary and attempted theft. He also was arrested for an unrelated warrant that was issued through Leavenworth Municipal Court.
