A Chattanooga woman called police on Aug. 3 when she said she heard a loud noise and discovered an older man wearing a pinstripe suit had invaded her condo.

She described hearing a "loud bang" and finding the man digging through her dresser drawers.

She told police that when he noticed her, he told her he needed money.

She said she told him to take what he wanted and that she did not have any money. According to police, he told her not to say anything and left.

However, she said after he left, she immediately heard him bust another door open down the hall.

When another woman inside screamed, he ran away.

Another resident of the condominium was able to get the man's license plate number.

Because of this, Michael Lebrone Anderson, 65, was arrested approximately two weeks later. He is facing aggravated burglary, vandalism, attempted robbery and three counts of burglary.

Anderson has an extensive criminal record for burglary and theft.

Roy Exum: Our Senseless Divide

If I could change one thing about the schools in Chattanooga, my wish would be that everybody could become good friends. I’m talking about the private schools versus the public schools. The rancor is so bad we hardly ever play in sports anymore and what the loathsome TSSAA has done in recent years to the out-numbered private schools is sinful. My dream would be that there would ...
