PINECREST, Fla. - Residents in a Pinecrest neighborhood helped police arrest a man accused of burglarizing a home in the Miami-Dade County village.

Giorgio Barsallo, 19, of Key Biscayne, was arrested last week on charges of burglary, and loitering and prowling.

Pinecrest police said Barsallo burglarized a home in the 7300 block of 98th Street on Feb. 12, removing a screen and breaking a window.

A resident who lived two streets away called 911 to report a man who jumped into her backyard, and another resident who was driving called police after seeing a man run from the house.

Police said a burglar alarm scared Barsallo away.

Barsallo has been arrested on several burglary and drug possession charges dating to May 2011.
