GRANITE BAY, Calif. (AP) — Authorities in Northern California say a man has been arrested after he left his ID at a home he allegedly burglarized.

The Sacramento Bee reports a woman and her daughter returned home and found suitcases filled with their stuff and a trash can with two of her husband’s rifles outside the home.

The office says that shortly after that 28-year-old Richard Holesapple exited the home and the women chased and pinned him down but he was able to flee.

The Placer County Sheriff’s Office says Holesapple was arrested Friday in a field near the Granite Bay home he had allegedly burglarized.

It says officers quickly identified him thanks to a California ID the women found at the house.
