The Carroll County Sheriff's Office arrested a man after deputies responded to a home burglary in progress.
It happened early this morning in the 5300 block of Lucus Drive, in Mt. Airy after a homeowner, alerted by a family member, noticed a motion sensor light had been activated, authorities said. Christopher James Geary, 31, broke into the screened porch area of the residence and after deputies arrived he fled to some nearby bushes where he was later located during a search by deputies.
Investigators also said he had to be transported to an area hospital because of his behavior and unusual statements.
