A Salina man woke about 4 a.m. Thursday morning to find a man inside his home in the 300 block of S. 4th Street.
Police Captain Gary Hanus said the man chased the suspect out of his house and down the sidewalk. He then went back inside to call police and heard his pickup being started and then driving away.
Officers put out an attempt to locate and the 2003 silver Ford F-150 was stopped in the area of Centennial and Crawford. After being questioned 53 year-old Billy Beamon was arrested on requested charges of aggravated burglary, felony theft, and driving while suspended.
Beamon had picked up the key to the F-150 while inside the victims home.
