Watertown Police caught a man stealing items from a house on Bromfield Street.

On Oct. 8 at 12:41 a.m., a man was spotted carrying a TV out of a home on Bromfield Street, and when police arrived they saw a man walk back into the house, said Watertown Police Lt. Michael Lawn.

“Officers surrounded the house and rang the doorbell but there was no response,” Lawn said. “They heard someone dragging something across a floor and saw a man’s head pop up.”

Police went around back and yelled at the man to give up, but he ran back into the house.

“They found him curled up hiding behind a chair inside the house,” Lawn said.

Along with the TV, officers found other items he had taken and stored in a home on Essex Street, including a PlayStation and DVDs, Lawn said.

Police arrested Mitchell A. Harrison, 25, of 11 Patten St., on charges of felony breaking and entering at night, larceny over $250 and breaking a town ordinance for possession of marijuana under one ounce, Lawn said.
