CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Police in Charlotte say an electronic monitoring device worn by a teenager on probation helped them in tracking him down in connection with a home break-in.

A statement from police says the 17-year-old was arrested and charged Wednesday with felony breaking and entering and larceny after breaking and entering. He was jailed on $25,000 bail.

According to police, information from the monitoring device the teen was wearing for his probation on unrelated crimes showed he had been at the break-in victim’s home.

It’s not known whether the teen has an attorney.
