HORN LAKE, MS (WMC) -

Horn Lake Police Department arrested the man believed to have been caught on camera prowling through someone's house Tuesday night.

An alert on the homeowner's phone tipped him off to the uninvited guest, whom police identified as Brandon Barnard Johnson.

The homeowner watched his surveillance camera feed as the man entered the home while they were away.

The hidden camera captured the burglar as he peeked his head around the door, an entry that nearly knocked over a table in the living room.

But, the gloved criminal was in no hurry once inside the home on Briarwood Drive. He even made a second trip back inside. 

Despite the video never showing the man taking anything, Horn Lake police officers said a hundreds of dollars worth of property was taken from the family.

“When I go to work at night, I always check behind my house, because I work at night," said Eddie Davis, who lives in the neighborhood. "I make sure everything is secured and my wife and stuff and make sure the alarm is on and everything."

Horn Lake investigators wouldn't say what was taken, but based on the clips, the burglar focused a lot of attention on the table he almost knocked over.
