An alert neighbor and quick action by police helped nab a home burglary suspect.
It happened just before lunch in the Windsor Downs subdivision of Greenville. Police tell us Aaron Simpson broke into the home on Southlea Drive. They say Simpson was scared off by a motion detector and immediately left.
A neighbor saw the suspected burglar leave and called with a description of his car. Greenville police spotted the silver Cadillac on Fire Tower Road and pulled it over near the Liberty Tax Service.
Simpson is charged with attempted breaking and entering for the home on Southlea, while he's also charged with breaking, entering & larceny to a home on Hillard Lane back on December 9th. Police say they're investigating whether Simpson is involved with other crimes at this time.
Neighbors tell us this isn't the first robbery in the area and they pledge to continue looking out for each other.
