Man caught in the act amid second home burglary

Posted:
MCGREGOR -

A McGregor man is caught red-handed as he burglarized his second home.

24 year old Justin Holt is charged with burglary of habitation. Police say he stole from a home on 8th street in McGregor on January 13. During that act, a surveillance camera on a home next door caught him walking around. McGregor PD then enhanced the video and were able to identify Holt.

Then on Tuesday, January 21 a tip came in saying a suspicious car was at a home on 6th street in McGregor. Police realized this was Holt's car and scoped out the area. Then police say they saw Holt walk out with stolen items.

"We take it personal when a house is burglarized and so we were putting forth every effort to identify the vehicle and the person in the first burglary and we get a break in watching this vehicle," Asst. Chief James Burson said.

Holt was found with multiple stolen items including a knife and a handgun from the first burglarized home. Police say Holt told them he did it because he didn't have a job and he needed to make a living.
