SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- Neighbors are upset, but not surprised following a burglary in their neighborhood.

RELATEDHOME BREAK-IN LEADS TO ARREST

Springfield Police were called to the 400 block of West Quinalt Street early Saturday morning when a woman found a stranger in her home, rifling through her things.

They say the woman made eye contact with the suspect and he fled on foot, but nearby residents say they aren't surprised to hear this happened. 

"It is a big concern you know I'm always worried about it," said one neighbor.

Springfield Police were assisted by Eugene Police and EPD K9, Hunter. 

Hunter was able to find the suspect's scent and find him in a nearby neighbor's yard.

The neighborhood is located directly behind the By-Gully bike path and some neighbors believe that's why they fall victim to this kind of thing.

They say they often see people prowling, looking in windows and cars, but that this is a good reminder to stay vigilant.

"I've got all my porch lights on," said the same neighbor. "Motion lights help -- just being aware of what's going on in your neighborhood (helps)."
