A 15-year-old girl’s quick action led to the arrest of a suspected prowler in Chico.

Thirty-one-year-old Bryan Miller was booked into the Butte County Jail for prowling after a teen was home alone Monday night when she looked outside to see him in her backyard, looking through a window.

Fearing the man was going to break-in, the teen ran to a neighbor’s house and called 911. Police were in the area and found Miller in the 800 block of Lorinda Lane moments later.

Police say Miller never entered the house, but they found evidence he had been prowling through a neighbor’s back yard as well.
