Police in the United States have arrested a man after finding his cell phone charging at the scene of a burglary.

The alarm was raised when the son of a Maryland homeowner arrived home and disturbed an intruder going through rooms in the property.

Startled, the burglar jumped out a window and fled.

The son called police, who searched the home and found a cell phone charging in an electric socket.

The phone led Montgomery County police to 25-year-old Cody Wilkins, who was later charged in connection with a string of burglaries.
