PINSON — A Pinson man was arrested shortly after 1 a.m. Monday after authorities said he broke into a neighbor’s home.
Mauricio Bravo-Hernandez, 30, is charged with second-degree burglary and is in Jefferson County Jail with bond set at $30,000.
Deputies responded to a burglary in progress call at a home in the 6700 block of Crossbrook Lane, said Jefferson County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Randy Christian. Christian said the homeowner told deputies he was awakened by the sound of someone opening his front door.
The homeowner went to investigate and in the living room of his home, he saw that his front door was open, Christian said.
The homeowner went to check his 4-year-old daughter’s bedroom and found the man hiding there. When he confronted him, the man fled. Christian said the daughter was not in her room at the time because she was sleeping with her parents.
