NORFOLK, Va. (NPD) – A Norfolk man was arrested yesterday morning after he was caught breaking into a home in the Estabrook area of Norfolk.
Eric T. Robinson, 22, of the 3400 block of Chesapeake Boulevard, was charged with breaking and entering with the intent to commit a felony, grand larceny, and destruction of property.
Around 9:45 a.m., police responded to a burglary in progress in the 3700 block of Nottaway Street.
The caller told police that they saw a man, later identified as Robinson, wearing a red shirt breaking into the home. When officers arrived, Robinson was seen running away from the residence, and after a brief foot pursuit he was taken into custody.
