NEW BRUNSWICK - A homeowner’s security system led to the arrest of the man who reportedly broke into her New Brunswick home.

The resident tells News 12 New Jersey that her home alarm was triggered while she was not at home.

The burglar supposedly broke into the home through a back window, ripped the alarm off the wall and also kicked in the bedroom door.
