ROGERS COUNTY, Oklahoma -

An alert neighbor in Rogers County went above and beyond by staying home from work to watch a teenager, whom she suspected of committing crimes in her neighborhood.

And she spotted him breaking into a neighbor's house.

Because of her efforts, 15-year-old was arrested.

The boy was wearing an ankle monitor from a case in Broken Arrow, but that didn't seem to stop him from causing trouble once he moved to Rogers County.

Neighbors said that area is generally a quiet place with hardly any crime.

They said that changed once this particular 15-year-old boy moved in.

They said he was left alone during the day and wandered the area, sometimes up to a mile away, knocking on doors and ringing doorbells.

One neighbor took a picture of him doing just that.

"We saw him walking the neighborhood with his ankle monitor on and on his skateboard," Lynna said.

Around that time, cars and homes started being broken into and items were stolen.

Lynna and her husband figured out it was happening on Fridays, once school started, so Lynna took the extraordinary step of staying home from work on a Friday, got her binoculars, went upstairs, and conducted her own personal stake out.

She watched him for three hours, saw him ring her neighbor's doorbell, check for keys, then find a way inside

"Then he came to the side of the house by the double garage doors," Lynna said. "He pushed it and it didn't move, then he went to the little one and pushed it and it opened, and he just went inside. And I called the Sheriff."

Two deputies got there within minutes and caught the teenager hiding in a bedroom in the neighbor's house.

Once they started looking at his ankle monitor GPS, they realized it placed him at another house where a crime was reported and placed him at several other homes, as well.

Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton said they found, "Unexplained occurrences repeatedly on someone's property, where he has absolutely no good reason to be on."

News On 6 confirmed with Broken Arrow sources, this is the same teenager who grabbed a 13-year-old girl from her bus stop last winter and was dragging her away, until an alert neighbor ran out of her house, screaming, and he let the girl go.

We're told he's now waiting for placement in a secure location, but that girl's father, was shocked to learn, the boy was out, at all, let alone left alone to wander a neighborhood where young girls live.
