A 32-year-old Bryan man was charged with burglary and evading arrest late Thursday after College Station officers found him with items stolen from a home in the 1100 block of Marsteller Avenue, authorities said.

Police were called just after 11 p.m. by a homeowner who said a group of men rang the doorbell and ran off after the porch light came on.

Men in a group matching the caller's description ran off when officers tried to contact them, police said.

Tyrone Taylor was caught after a short foot pursuit, according to a statement from the College Station Police Department. Officers said he had items that were determined to be stolen from a house not far from the initial call. He remained in the Brazos County Jail early Friday, according to court records. His bail for the burglary charge had not been set at 8 a.m.

Officers were unable to locate the other two men.

Burglary of a habitation is a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Evading arrest or detention is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
