Police say a teenager broke a window and ransacked a home before making off with jewelry, prescription medication, electronic equipment and personal identity documents.

Biloxi police arrested 18-year-old Michael Delon Lee Jr. Thursday on a charge of residential burglary.

Maj. Chris De Back said the burglary happened in the 200 block of Dewey Circle in Biloxi on Jan. 9 while the owners weren’t home.

When they returned, De Back said, they found their window was broken and their home was ransacked.

De Back said Lee was later developed as a suspect when he was arrested for an unrelated incident and was found in possession of some of the victim’s property.

Lee is held at the Harrison County jail on a $75,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Bruce Strong.
