A 16-year-old suspect is in custody after he allegedly burglarized a home Saturday afternoon while delivering a newspaper.

A neighbor noticed the suspect enter the home, located on the 700 block of 10th Avenue SE, through a side door after putting the paper in the mailbox.

Reports indicate the resident was not a subscriber to the newspaper the suspect was delivering.
