FARGO – A homeowner confronted and chased a burglar who was trying to break into a home in the 1400 block of West Gateway Circle about 11:45 p.m. Sunday.

The burglar was trying to gain entry into the home through a window when the resident heard a noise and went outside to investigate, Police Lt. Joel Vettel said.

The resident chased the suspect for a time, but then lost sight of the would-be burglar.

Police set up a perimeter and a canine officer was brought in to track the suspect. The dog followed a trail for a distance, but then lost the scent, Vettel said.
