SILVER SPRING, Md. -- Police in Maryland arrested a man after finding his cell phone charging at the scene of a burglary.

Now Montgomery County police say 25-year-old Cody Wilkins has been charged in other burglaries.

It began when a homeowner's son arrived as a burglar was going through rooms in the home Friday. Startled, the burglar jumped out a window and fled.

The son called police, who searched the home and found a cell phone charging in an electric socket. The phone led police to Wilkins.

Police say Wilkins' home was among those in the area that lost power last week when a snowstorm moved through. Arrest records say he's been linked to other break-ins.

Wilkins was brought to a Montgomery County jail on $1 million bond. It wasn't clear if he has an attorney.
