A woman returned to her Turlock residence Sunday afternoon to find a man burglarizing it, the Turlock Police Department reported. The man, as it turned out, was the woman’s neighbor.
The woman discovered the suspected burglar, later identified as Daniel Kahler, 35, when she returned to her home in the 1100 block of Sycamore Street around 12:30 p.m. Sunday.
The woman called 911 and Turlock Police officers arrived within a minute of the call.
The woman came out of her home, followed by Kahler, who was taken into custody without incident.
The woman told officers Kahler had done some handy work for her in the past. He gained entry into her home through a side window, said Turlock Police spokesman Sgt. Russ Holeman.
Kahler reportedly had property on him that belonged to the woman, according to the police report.
