Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police "arrested Nathaniel Snowton, 54, at approximately 1:30 a.m., Jan. 13, near the 100 block of East Jones Street following a residential burglary," police report.

Metro units responded to the scene and "learned someone had entered the rear of the residence and fled after the homeowner announced she was armed," police say.

"Officers located the suspect hiding in the back courtyard of a neighboring yard and apprehended him after a brief foot pursuit. In addition to the reported burglary, the suspect was also in possession of two Georgia licenses that were not his."

The suspect was charged with burglary 1st degree, obstruction by fleeing, criminal trespass and two counts of theft of lost or mislaid property. He was transported to the Chatham County Detention Center without incident.
