    A man was arrested following a breaking and entering at a house in Worcester, Massachusetts.

    Police said they received a call about a house being broken into on July 20 just before 1 p.m.

    Several units responded to the Burncoat Street home and met with one of its occupants.

    Police were told that a male suspect was seen inside of the home without anyone's knowledge or consent.

    The officers were told that the suspect jumped out of the bathroom window, damaging the window screen. According to police, the occupant then chased after the suspect as he ran towards West Boylston Street.

    The occupant was unable to continue the chase but was able to provide the officers with a detailed physical and clothing description, police said.

    According to police, several units then began to search the area. One of the Neighborhood Response Team members found a man who matched the description. The possible suspect was found walking in the area of West Boylston Street and Trottier Street. The officer saw the man remove two rings from his fingers and throw them to the ground while looking into a bag. The contents of the bag were later confirmed to be jewelry and electronic devices belonging to the Burncoat Street home.

    The man was detained and identified as Ronald Vanclette, 47, of Worcester.

    The occupant of the home positively identified Vanclette.

    Vanclette was arrested and charged with willful and malicious destruction of property, breaking and entering in the daytime with intent to commit a felony, larceny over the value of $1,200 and receiving stolen property over the value of $1,200.
