A Queens man was arrested Thursday after a homeowner spotted him ransacking her home through her home surveillance system that she monitors through her cell phone, according to a Feb. 14 report in Newsday.

David Bradford, 26, of Flushing, was arraigned Feb. 14 on felony charges of second-degree burglary and possession of burglar’s tools.

Police said the woman wasn’t at her home on Marietta Road in Glen Cove Thursday, but was using her smart phone to monitor the home’s surveillance system. In a news release, police said the victim was “shocked” when she spotted the man inside her house and immediately called police.

When officers pulled up to the home, they found the front window open and allegedly saw Bradford trying to flee through the sliding glass door in the rear of the home. The officers chased him as he jumped over a fence and was caught while he was trying to scale a fence in the adjoining yard, police said.

Bradford – who police said has numerous prior arrests – faced a judge Friday morning at First District Court in Hempstead and was held on $50,000 bail and $100,000 bond.
