Valdosta - A Valdosta man was caught in the act of breaking into a house.

38 year-old Jimmy Witherspoon is charged with burglary and criminal trespass.

Police say he broke into a home on Marion Street yesterday afternoon.

The homeowner pulled up to her house and saw windows broken and Witherspoon inside.

He attempted to escape but police had him surrounded.  "The dog initially lost the track, picked it up and brought us right to the offender. He was hiding down in a colvitt by the residence. One of our officers actually behind another residence," says Commander Brian Childress of the Valdosta Police Department.

Police believe Witherspoon could be tied to other burglaries in the city.
