A Macon teen was sentenced to 12 years in prison Thursday for a November 2012 burglary at a house in the citys Unionville neighborhood.
Lewis Frazier III, 19, was one of three or four men involved in the Bankston Avenue break-in, but he was the only one caught.
Macon police officer David Wiggins chased Frazier, and the teen outran him, though not before a woman who lives nearby recognized Frazier and yelled his nickname.
L.J., stop! the woman said.
Wiggins later tracked down Frazier.
A job well done, said Myra H. Tisdale, assistant Bibb County district attorney.
After a one-day trial, Frazier was convicted of first-degree burglary and misdemeanor obstruction.
Fraziers accomplices, who got away, made off with an Xbox, clothes and an iPod. Theyd been trying to steal televisions from the house, Tisdale said.
Bankston Avenue, off Columbus Road, is five blocks west of Pio Nono Avenue.
