COLORADO SPRINGS – Just before 8 p.m. Monday night, CSPD officers from the Falcon and Stetson Hills divisions were dispatched to a burglary in progress in the 2700 block of Vickers Dr.

The person who reported the crime told officers that an unknown male was actively trying to force entry into the residence.

CSPD said that just before officers arrived, a woman who lived at the residence arrived and interrupted the burglary. The woman threatened the suspect with a “piece of metal” and he stopped trying to enter the home.

Officers arrived a short time later and took the suspect into custody without incident.

The suspect has been identified as 25-year-old Jesse Moreno. He was charged with criminal attempt burglary.
