Covington police arrested a juvenile for burglary, possession of marijuana and possession of a weapon during a crime after witnesses saw someone believed to be him running out the back of a home on Avery Street.

According to reports, the Avery Street resident left her house to go to church at 9:45 a.m. and when she returned at 1:20 p.m. saw that her TV was missing from her living room. She told officers that she then grabbed her phone off the coffee table and went outside to call 911. While she was outside, a man walking down Avery Street told her that someone was running out of the back of her house toward the woods. She then, reportedly, ran around the back of her house and saw a young black male with a blue jacket and a gray skull cap running into the woods toward Washington Street.

When police arrived on Avery Street, another officer had apprehended a juvenile male matching that description on Washington Street. After officers escorted the victim to Washington Street, she was able to identify the suspect.

According to reports the victim told officers that two TVs were missing, a 55-inch Toshiba and a 55-inch Element. Officers also found a black bag on the kitchen floor with loose coins that the victim said were taken from two plastic tubs in her closet.

According to reports the TVs were located behind the shed of the house next door. Officers also recovered two TV remote controls form the juvenile male, one for a Toshiba TV and one for an Element TV.

The juvenile male was then arrested with a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana on him, along with an iPhone, condoms, a lighter and a knife.
