Police responded to a burglary in progress Friday afternoon at Trojan Palms apartments, but the suspect was long gone when officers arrived.

Troy Police Capt. Danny Barron said a neighbor of the tenant came by to check on the apartment and found somebody inside that was not meant to be there.

“They actually saw someone inside, but he ran off before police arrived,” Barron said.
