    A burglary suspect was arrested after being caught on camera twice by a homeowner who was watching with a remote controlled surveillance system, police in Manchester, New Hampshire, say.

    Thirty-eight-year-old John Peloquin of Manchester has been charged with burglary after being found in an apartment on a Thornton Street property.

    According to police, the homeowner was watching the security system from another place around 11 a.m. Thursday and called 9-1-1 about a possible intruder.

    When a police officer and a K-9 responded to 184 Thornton St., they found a damaged front door to the first floor apartment, but found no one inside. A second floor apartment was also searched, but there was no one there.

    Around 1:10 p.m., police say the homeowner called 9-1-1 again, saying the man had returned and was in the second floor apartment. Authorities say a police officer and his K-9 made it over to the Thornton Street property and found Peloquin inside. 

    No word on if Peloquin has an attorney or when he'll be arraigned.
