Police said officers responded to a call of a burglary in progress in the 3400 block of Cheyenne Lane from a 55-year-old man who returned home to find a stranger in his house. The resident, police said, chased Starks, who fled on a bicycle.

Responding officers located Starks and, after a short chase, arrested him in the 1000 block of Adelphi Avenue in Waukegan. Police said Starks has two convictions for felony residential burglary. Authorities said the investigation continues and additional charges are possible.
