The victim of a home burglary gave police a description that helped officers find a suspect blocks away from the crime scene, according to Madison police.

The 46-year-old victim told police she was inside her home in the 2500 block Rae Lane Monday morning when the doorbell rang. She said she ignored it because she wasn’t expecting anyone. She said she then heard a burglar break out a window in the rear of the house.

The burglar ran when he realized someone was home but not before the victim could get a good look.

A police dog was used to find a suspect a couple of blocks away.

Jonathan M. Glenzer-Brown, 23, of Madison, was arrested on suspicion of burglary.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
