    Rutland City Police are looking a man involved in a burglary on Library Avenue this morning.

    Police said around 10:30 a.m. a Library Avenue homeowner came home to find a person "ransacking" his residence. The homeowner demanded to know who the intruder was and the individual responded with a name that police believe to be a fake identification.

    The suspect then fled with a bag that police believe was filled with items stolen from the residence. No one was injured in the incident and no weapons were displayed.

    Police said the suspect fled east toward Grove Street and then disappeared. A canine from the state Department of Fish & Wildlife was called to the city to help track the suspect. As of 11:30 a.m. police say the scent trail followed by the dog led them south to the downtown transit center.

    Police described the suspect as a white man in his 20s, standing between 5 feet, 8 inches tall and 5 feet, 10 inches tall with a slender build. The man was wearing a white jacket and brown pants and carrying a yellow-flowered laundry bag containing several items, police said. Anyone with information is asked to call 773-1816.
