A man awoke in his Stockton home early Tuesday afternoon to an intruder digging through his pockets, police say.

Around noon, police got a call from a man living near East Bianchi Road and North El Dorado Streets about a burglary at his home, according to police reports.

The man yelled once seeing burglar, spooking the other man. The burglar then ran out of the house and met up with another man waiting for him.

One man – the suspect waiting outside – was caught by police after seeing them running down Clowes Court, due east of the victim’s home. The suspect who went through the man’s pockets is still on the run.

Saul Ortega, 25, was arrested and now faces burglary, possession of stolen property, parole violation and conspiracy charges.
