HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A man and a juvenile are accused of burglarizing a Huntsville home in broad daylight.

Officers were called to a home in the 3000 block of Bayless Drive around 10 a.m. Wednesday to investigate a burglary.

A vigilant neighbor called police after seeing two people inside the home. The neighbor then followed the suspects as they left the home on foot.

Officers used a K-9 unit to track down the suspects. Police arrested 19-year-old Deonte Marquis McCray and a juvenile a short time later.
