MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - A Loxley man is in jail charged with a burglary in Mobile after a homeowner found the suspect in his house.
Cory Arthur Blackmon, 25, was charged with burglary after police said he broke into a house on Blue Heron Ridge early Saturday, June 23..
Susan Gardner said her neighbor found the suspect in the kitchen.
"He woke up about 3 o'clock in the morning, heard someone walking through the house, Thought maybe it was one of his kids, went to get his gun, and he heard the door close, and he went out and saw the guy. So he called the police," Gardner said.
Gardner said her neighbor's burglary happened less than 24 hours after her home was hit.
"I realized someone must have come in my house from the 15 minutes I was walking the dogs," she said.
The thief came in through the unlocked garage door, and at first Gardner didn't realize she had been robbed.
"I always check my email, and see what's going on and I thought where's my IPad? Where is it? And I looked all around. I called my daughter, and asked if she'd seen it, she said no, no mama I haven't seen it. So, then I got ready to go out, and I couldn't find my purse. I always leave it in the kitchen. Then it hit me, somebody's been in my house," Gardner said.
Gardner doesn't know if the same suspect is responsible for her burglary. But police were able to quickly locate a suspect in connection with the other burglary.
Detectives used the App "Find my I phone" which led them straight to the Circle K on Hillcrest and Girby Road. That's where they found Blackmon along with the stolen I-Phone and other items taken from the victim's house.
Blackmon remained in Metro Jail Monday, charged with second degree burglary, credit card possession for fraudulent use, and possession of burglary tools. He has a court date set for June 26.
