Felony charges have been leveled against a would-be jewel thief whose heist was foiled for a second time this year by a homeowner.The suspect, Jonathan Franzen, 32, has been bound to the grand jury on burglary and grand theft charges for his latest unsuccessful caper. His arrest came after police responded to a burglary call where a homeowner had caught Franzen red-handed inside his house.“He was able to free himself from the homeowner and flee on foot,” said policeman Aaron Roberts. “He was pursued by nearby contractors.”Franzen was caught by patrolman Roberts on South Chancery Street.“He admitted to being in the house without the homeowner’s permission,” Roberts revealed.A search of the suspect brought compelling evidence.
