Police: Man arrested for B&E after neighbor calls 911

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Officers with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department have arrested a man for burglarizing a home after an alert neighbor called 911, according to a release from CMPD.

On Monday, April 22, at approximately 12:30 p.m., patrol officers were dispatched to a residential breaking and entering call for service at a home in the 600 block of Farmhurst Drive.

A witness called 911 to report observing a man smash a window of a neighboring home before going inside, police said.

The witness gave the 911 tele-communicator a detailed description of the man, and officers immediately arrived on the scene and saw a man matching the description of the suspect exiting a wooded area near the home. 

Officers detained the individual, later identified as Stephen S. Irby, 25, and positively identified him as the suspect who broke into the home by the witness. 

After searching the wooded area, officers recovered a flat screen television and computer that was removed during the break-in, the report states.

Irby was arrested and charged with breaking and entering and larceny.

Anyone with additional information concerning this case and or suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704.334.1600.
