A burglar alarm and an untimely fall tripped up a burglary suspect in Hilo.

Officers responding to a burglary alarm on Kukuau Street chased after a 25-year-old man running from the home.

But the man fell in a neighbor’s yard and police caught and arrested him just after 11 p.m. Wednesday.

Police recovered two television remotes and a TV power cord near where the suspect fell.

Investigating detectives recovered a television set.

Authorities charged Colin Kerrigan, who is homeless, with first-degree burglary and third degree theft today.

He was being held on $5,500 bail pending an initial court appearance Monday.
