NEW CANAAN - New Canaan police are asking for the public's help in locating a suspect who burglarized a home yesterday.

According to investigators, a woman living in a house on Louises Lane heard a crash from inside a bedroom office at around 7 p.m., but couldn't get into the room because the burglar had apparently locked himself inside.

Police say the woman began to yell, ran out of the house and called 911. K-9 dogs that were brought to the scene picked up the burglar's scent, but eventually the trail went cold.

Anyone with information on the burglary in being asked to contact the New Canaan Police Department at 203-594-3500.
