COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Officers say they caught a burglar red-handed leaving a business early Sunday morning.

Police were called to the 3700 block of Airport Road around 3 a.m. after an alarm was triggered, and pulled up in time to see the intruder walking out of the building. The prowler spotted police and made a run for it, briefly getting away from officers. They discovered him a short time later hiding in a loading dock between a garage and a large truck at another business.

The suspect has been identified as 28-year-old Trenton Hagan. Hagan faces several charges, including second-degree burglary.

Police did not name the business, and it's unclear if anything was taken.
