Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - A suspect has been arrested and charged with burglary for a break-in from February due to the investigation for another burglary, according to reports from the Louisville Metro Police Department.

According to police reports, Bradley M. Chansler allegedly broke into a Jeffersontown home in the early morning hours of February 18. The owner of the home, an elderly disabled man, confronted Chansler with a .22 caliber Baretta and called 911.
