Police say two phone calls helped catch a burglar in northwest Portland Thursday night.

According to police, one call was made by the victim while she hid, and the second call was made by officers.

When police arrived, they found the suspect carrying a polk-a-dot bag full of stuff including jewelry.

Officials say when police dialed the victim’s cell phone number, a phone in the bag rang.

The suspect, Jeffery McCawley, was arrested and charged with burglary.
