Something went bump in the night in a Delaware neighborhood, but it wasn't a case of noisy neighbors!
Residents heard loud banding in the vacant home next door and called the police.
It turned out that it was a burglar, and police say he was trying to bust his way out of the house with a sledgehammer.
Joseph Scales was arrested at the scene, and police say that he told them he was a contractor.
Needless to say, they didn't fall for it, charging him with burglary.
Overnight look for passing clouds and a few flurries. Bundle up and watch for icy patches on roads and sidewalks. Lows in the upper teens and low 20s.
The cold stays with us for a few more days with highs around freezing.
Looks like another storm system moving in to start the weekend. This one will likely bring a mix of snow, sleet, and rain. Stay tuned.
