Balcony burglar arrested

A burglar that broke into flats in central Sweden by climbing through balconies has been arrested, according to local newspaper Dalarnas Tidning.

The man got into the flats, sometimes while residents were inside asleep, through unlocked balcony doors. He had struck over a dozen times, police say, in the counties of Dalarna and Jämtland.

A nationwide manhunt was in operation when he handed himself into police custody in the town of Falun.
