A burglary in progress with a van backed into a driveway caught the attention of neighbors who called police.

The incident ended with the suspect being arrested following a foot chase across the Highway 120 Bypass.

Manteca Police spokesman, Lt. Tony Souza, said it all happened shortly before 10 a.m. in the 1200 block of Laurel Park Circle where the man was seen actively removing property from the victim’s residence.

When the patrolman pulled up to the home, the man reportedly dropped the property taken from the residence and fled eastbound on Laurel Park Circle.  Souza said the man scaled the sound wall to the freeway where he was spotted by waiting Manteca Police officers as he fled across the freeway. He was apprehended in the highway median by officers.

Souza said the suspect was identified as Ricardo Solis, 20, of Manteca, adding there were no other suspects involved in the burglary.  An investigation revealed that Solis had gained entry into the home by breaking out a rear window.  Solis is currently on parole for burglary. 

He was booked into San Joaquin County Jail without bail on charges that included burglary, possession of stolen property and parole violation.
