SAVANNAH, GA (December 15, 2011): An 18-year-old Savannah man has been charged with burglary after breaking into his neighbor’s house Thursday afternoon, thanks to an alert homeowner and quick reaction of Southside Precinct Patrol.


Roderick Parrish of the 800 block of Tavern Road was arrested at his own residence after his neighbor arrived for lunch unexpectedly and saw two men in the process of burglarizing his house. One of the suspects ran into the house next door and the other began jumping fences to escape.


Police went next door and confronted Parrish who was identified as one of the suspects. All of the items taken in the burglary were recovered and returned to the victim.


Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police K-9, Aviation and Patrol officers searched the area but have not yet been able to find the second suspect.
