A Benton man is behind bars after allegedly attempting to steal a window air-conditioning unit from a home on Dalewood Drive.

Brandon D. Lea, 30, was arrested after police say he fled the area on foot, but returned later that day.

A nearby resident called 911 to report the incident around 8 a.m.

Lea now faces felony charges of residential burglary and criminal attempt to commit residential burglary.
