ALBANY – An Albany man faces burglary charges after police say he was caught in the act.

Police say Junior Jennings, 18, had forced his way into the old DeJohn’s Restaurant on Lark Street Saturday morning, and officers found him inside.

Jennings was arrested after a brief foot chase. He now faces burglary and trespassing charges.

Police say Jennings was also arrested last August for allegedly stealing an ATV from a home on Sawyer Place.
