Dane Co. deputies arrested a suspected burglar Thursday after a man checking on his parents' home found the criminal inside.

The son was checking on the home on Lincoln Road in the town of Oregon around 3:20 p.m.

Another family member called the man after seeing fresh tire tracks in the snow leading to the home. The son found a burglar inside, who ran away and got into a 2003 Buick Park Avenue.

Deputies stopped the car and arrested 32-year-old Jason Svendsen. He's now charged with burglary and felony bail jumping.

He was also cited for operating after suspension, and faces additional charges from Verona Police.
