A woman returning to her Queens Lane home at about 11:15 a.m. Thursday told police she confronted a man on the second floor, who then left, carrying property from the home.
Darien Police responding to the report ran after the man, later identified as James Jackson, 47, and took him into custody not far from the home.
While investigating the Queens Lane burglary, a resident of Goodwives River Road resident reported to police that a man had also entered her home, then fled when she approached him. Jackson was charged with burglarizing that home as well.
