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.
