James Jackson, 47, of Richmond Hill, N.Y. was charged with burglary Thursday June 7, after he broke into Queens Lane and Goodwives River Road residences.

Darien police received a call from a Queens Lane resident reporting a burglar in her home at 11:15 a.m. The homeowner, who left her home a short time earlier, came home to find the suspect on the second floor. When she confronted the suspect he exited the building carrying items from her home, according to the report.

Police arrived and a short foot pursuit ensued; Jackson was then taken into custody.

While investigating the incident on Queens Lane, police were contacted by a Goodwives River Road resident who reported an unknown male had also entered her home. When he was approached by the resident he fled the building. Jackson was charged with burglarizing that home as well.

During the processing of Jackson, he admitted to detectives that he was responsible for another burglary that took place in Darien on May 15, the report said.

Jackson was charged with two counts of second-degree burglary; one count of third-degree burglary; one count of first-degree larceny; one count of fifth-degree larceny and two counts of possession of burglary tools.
