The Vicksburg Police Department captured a burglar still inside the house after an alert neighbor called 911.

Just after 11 p.m. a neighbor on National Street called 911 to report noise and suspicious activity in a nearby home.

A home in the 900 block of National appears to have been broken into. The burglar then cut power to the house and proceeded to start and then extinguish small fires. The fire department was dispatched but was canceled when the fires were put out.
