GREENACRES, Fla. -

A Palm Beach County man caught a burglar in his home from more than 1,000 miles away.

Greenacres police say the man was viewing video surveillance of his home on his cellphone when he saw someone enter his home while he was away in New York.

He alerted his neighbor, who called police.

Officers arrested 18-year-old Steven Enrique. Police say he had about $800 worth of jewelry from the home in his possession.

The Palm Beach Post reports that Enrique faces burglary charges and is being held in lieu of bond. It's not known if he has an attorney.
