On Saturday Jamestown Police officers were dispatched to a burglary in progress call at a south side address.

Following an investigation, it is alleged Sean Trask broke into the house through a window.

The 52-year-old was arrested by patrol personnel as he attempted to return to the home, walking through the backyard.

He faces drug and criminal impersonation charges, after the home’s owner decided not to pursue criminal charges for the alleged break-in.
