A neighbor who went over to check on a house break-in has led to the arrest of Brian Alex Stone Jr.

Stone, 23, of 3210 Broad St., is charged with aggravated burglary and theft of property.

Police were notified on Dec. 1 that a burglary had just taken place on Trailwood Drive.

The suspect was a black male with twists in his hair, who was driving a silver Dodge Caliber.

The resident said her residence was entered and her $500 42-inch flatscreen television was taken.

A neighbor saw the silver Dodge Caliber pull around back. The neighbor went over to the residence and saw a man coming out carrying a TV. He took a photo of the burglar and the vehicle.

Police distributed the photo to all officers. That led to the identification of Stone.

The tag on the vehicle came back to Santanya Woods. Police said in October she conducted a pawn transaction at EZ Pawn on Lee Highway using the same address as Stone's driver's license address.

The TV was not recovered. 

Stone has had a number of arrests, including for driving charges, carrying a dangerous weapon, theft, criminal trespass and assault.
