Police: Alleged burglar leaves a trail

An apparent abundance of brazenness and lack of brains led to the arrest of an Avondale teen on burglary charges, police said.

New Garden Township police said they took Phillip C. Doty, 19, into custody on Friday after a report of a burglary at an occupied residence in the 100 block of Interlachen Court. Footprints left in the house and outside were followed to Doty’s residence, and the victim made a positive ID, police said. Doty was released after posting after posting $1,000 cash bail to await a preliminary hearing on April 20, court records said.
