SOUTHAVEN, Miss. -- A man wanted for breaking into a home in the Greenbrook subdivision early Tuesday morning has been taken into custody.

Christopher New, 26, was charged with burglary of a residence.

WREG was told the suspect broke into the home around 7 a.m.

The homeowner discovered New inside her home on Old Forge Drive, rummaging through her stuff.

She and her teenage daughter were both in the house at the time of the break-in.

This was just the latest home to be burglarized in the area.

Two weeks ago, Scott Schaeffer said he went downstairs to find a guy creeping around his game room at his Lake Shore Drive home.

"It`s the ultimate violation," he told WREG. "It`s a terrifying experience to see someone — a stranger — inside your home."

Thankfully, no one was injured in either crime.
