A local man was arrested on burglary and other charges after he allegedly broke into an occupied Northern Westchester home.

Westchester County Police received a call shortly before 11:30 a.m., Sunday, March 1, reporting a burglary was in progress at 68 Maple Avenue, said Kieran O'Leary, spokesman for the department.

Another person said the resident had just confronted an intruder in his apartment.

Police Officers Scott Forsythe, Brian Tierney and Bryan Yatsko responded, located the man inside the apartment and took him into custody, he added.

The suspect, identified as Jevon Odum, 27, of Mount Kisco, was found in possession of multiple items of stolen property, O'Leary said.

Odum was charged with burglary, grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and possession of burglary tools.

He was held overnight at County Police headquarters in Hawthorne and was arraigned Monday in Mount Kisco Justice Court, where he was released on his own recognizance.

Officers recovered several pieces of jewelry, multiple credit and debit cards in other people’s names, $619 in cash, $60 in coins in a bag, a screwdriver and a pocket knife. 

Not all of the recovered items are from the Maple Avenue residence. 

Detectives from the General Investigations Unit are continuing to investigate and additional charges are possible.
