A 19-year-old man has been charged with burglary of habitation for breaking into a home and stealing several items.

On Sept. 25 the Belton Police Department arrested 19-year-old Torry Orlando Boult Jr. when they were called to a home located on the 400 block of E. 22nd Ave. 

When officers arrived they met with the son of the homeowners. He told police that someone had broken the back door and stole their television, video games, DVD player among other items. 

The officers then contacted a neighbor who had security cameras mounted on his house. The video showed a dark colored GMC Yukon parked in a small parking lot and a man wearing a white hoodie, black shirt, and black pants.  

The man was seen getting off the car with a passenger. The video shows the two men could be seen walking to the front of the house of which they broke into. 

The suspects could be seen walking out the house carrying large items placing it into their car. 

 On Sept. 27 a vehicle matching the description of the suspects was seen at a Bush's Chicken restaurant on Lake Rd. 

Boult Jr. was then followed to Belton High School by authorities. When authorities reviewed video from the school they noticed Boult was wearing the same outfit as in the burglary surveillance video. 

Boult was then stopped for a traffic violation and admitted to police that he was driving the Yukon when the burglary was committed. 

Boult denied to authorities that he went into the house and said a woman was the one that broke into the house and took the property. 

The family of the burglarized home pressed charges and a warrant was issued for Boult.
