COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Columbia Police officers say an alert witness helped them arrest a man wanted for breaking into a home Wednesday morning.

20-year-old Dvante Typaine Harris is charged with burglary. He is accused of using a gardening tool to try to pry open a window of a home on Woodrow Street just before 9:30 a.m.

Police say a witness provided investigators with a description of the suspect, and a short time later, an officer on patrol saw a man matching the description.  The witness then positively identified the man.

Harris was arrested and taken to Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
