    An off-duty Boston Police detective has successfully captured a breaking and entering suspect in Bosotn's Dorchester neighborhood.

    Saturday night the detective, who was off-duty at the time, spotted a man breaking into his personal car and going through his belongings. While he removed the suspect, who was later identified as 46 year old Enrique Santos, the detective called in for backup.

    Santos escaped and ran to hide in the basement of a nearby home. Additional units quickly arrived to the area of 120 Pleasant Street, ready to help the detective make the arrest.

    After a brief but violent struggle, the officers were able to take control of Santos and place him in custody. Further investigation revealed Santos had three outstanding warrants for past instances of larceny related charges.

    Santos will face charges of breaking and entering, trespassing, and resisting arrest. He is scheduled to appear in the Dorchester District Court.
