Montgomery County Police officers have a burglary suspect in custody after receiving a call that the man was casing homes on Friday in the Ashburton neighborhood off Old Georgetown Road.

MCPD spokeswoman Angela Cruz said police received a call at noon for a suspicious situation in the 10000 block of Clue Drive, where someone reported a suspect walking up and down the street looking at houses.

Police arrived at the scene and spent time looking for the suspect before locating him and taking  him into custody.

A large group of MCPD patrol and detective cars were on the scene early Friday afternoon. Police reported a spike in neighborhood burglaries late last year.
