By Ina Ronquillo. CREATED Mar 26, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Vincent Linarez, 31, has been arrested and charged after being caught in the act during a burglary.

Deputy Tracy Suitt with the Pima County Sheriff's Department tells KGUN9 that on March 25, deputies responded to a burglary in progress in the 5300 block of South Bonney Avenue.

While en route, deputies learned a man forced entry into the residence of a 76-year-old female.

The woman was able to exit her residence with the aid of her walker and called 911 from her
cordless phone, said Suitt.
 
Deputies arrived minutes later and immediately surrounded the residence.

Contact was established with the suspect still inside, said Suitt.  The suspect complied with the
deputies commands, exited the residence and was taken into custody.

Linarez has been booked on second degree burglary, theft, and other misdemeanor warrants.
