Alleged Burglar Charged After Being Recognized

Cookeville police say a man who kicked in the door of a home on Dyer Avenue early Monday morning fled from the scene after being confronted by the homeowner.  Police say it happened about 2 am when someone broke in through a kitchen door. They say there was no car in the driveway and the burglar may have thought no one was home.  But the homeowner, in fact, was there and recognized the suspect as he ran from the scene. Police say that suspect also later called the victim's cell phone, but denied any part in the burglary.  Warrants were later take out charging 35-year-old Jessie James Pryor of Forrest Hill Road with aggravated burglary in the case. He goes to court next month.
