A 23-year-old Cortlandt Manor man has been nabbed by police and charged with the burglary of a Yorktown home Saturday morning, police said.
Scott Vcheverria was charged with second-degree burglary, a felony.
When the suspect entered a Pine Grove Court home, he was confronted by the homeowner who fought with him, police said. When the homeowner started calling police, the burglary suspect fled the scene on foot and ran into a nearby wooded area, police said.
The manhunt had officers from the Yorktown Police Department, New York State and Westchester County police searching for the suspect. Police did not say whether the man was armed.
Vcheverria was apprehended a short time later in Peekskill by Yorktown police officer Paul Grieve. He was remanded to the Westchester County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bail.
The defendant is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, Sept. 25.
