A Salina man was arrested after an aggravated burglary in southeast Salina early Monday night.

Just after 6:30 p.m., a 62-year-old Salina woman returned home on Red Fox Lane and heard a door at the back of the house slam, according to Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester.

In her room, she found scattered objects. The woman then went to the front of the house and saw a thin, balding white man who appeared to be in his late 20s or 30s. He was wearing a blue tracksuit. Other witnesses said he wore Adidas sweatshirts with a white stripe down the side.

When the woman asked him what he was doing there, he replied that he lived in the residence.

It appeared that about $20 worth of food had been eaten. Additionally, the woman’s SIG Sauer 232 .380 caliber handgun was missing. In addition, a cell phone not belonging to the woman was found in the residence.

Shortly after the woman’s encounter with the suspected burglar, an officer located a person matching her description near the intersection of Manchester Road and E. Republic Avenue. Deputies arrested Christopher Garrison, 31, of Salina on charges of aggravated burglary and theft.
