Jima Dak, 20, has been charged with burglary after allegedly breaking into a home in the 2000 block of 40th Place.

The family woke up at about 3 a.m. to noises, found a door open and a purse missing.

A family member turned on a missing cellphone locator feature and police used it to track down Dak.

Police say Dak tried to run but officers caught up and arrested him.

      There are tons of these Africans (Sudanese and others) working at TPI and Trinity in Newton, it’s really upsetting the Mexicans that did work at those places lol. Anyway, I don’t know why they are here or who is bringing them in I just know there’s more of them all the time.

    Gutsy and stupid move on his part.

    He breaks into my home, I promise you there will be no trial necessary. He will be aerated with my 12 gauge Remington pump.
