A 40-year-old man was charged Friday with breaking into a Springfield Township home on Tuesday.

Gregory Burns, formerly of Boardman and Youngstown, was charged with burglary, criminal damaging and theft.

Bond was set at $13,500.

He was arrested Friday after warrants were issued for him in connection with the break-in at a home on Beard Road. Police said the homeowner’s mother spotted Burns and another man leaving the house with a flat screen TV and called 911.

“She went down to confront him, and she confronted him. She was in close view and she recognized the one suspect,” said Springfield Township Police Chief Matt Mohn. “They both fled in a vehicle, and she got the license plate number.”

Mohn said Burns is a “person of interest” in several other recent burglaries in the township.
