MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO. (KTVI) - Police believe two break-ins Wednesday morning where the homeowner confronted the burglar could be connected. One happened around 9:30am at a home on Adie Road in Maryland Heights.
Police say the burglar broke a window and was confronted by the homeowner outside the house after the homeowner heard a crash. The suspect then took off without taking anything.
About an hour earlier in nearby Overland, a homeowner confronted a burglar inside a home on Niblic. Again, the criminal took off after he was confronted.
In both cases, the suspect is described as a white man with blonde hair.
There were no injuries in either case.
