On Saturday just before 9 p.m., a homeowner called police after hearing noises coming from the attic, which was accessed through a trap door in the ceiling of the garage. When officers responded,, they say they found 47-year-old Troy Tutza hiding in the attic. He was arrested and charged with burglary.

An item (a bar of soap shaped like a bear) was found near him that the occupants believed he had taken from inside the home, indicating he had been inside the residence prior to the owners' arrival.

Another call had been received in the area at approximately 3:40 p.m. describing a white male, 30's to 40's, long hair and a baseball cap that had been seen in the area looking into backyards. Officers had responded at that time and had not observed the male in the area. Tutza matched the description of this male observed earlier.

    Is there any good reason for KKTV not to publish the location of this break-in since it was already published in the police blotter and other local news outlets? It was at 840 Golden Hills Road in the Pinecliff neighborhood.
