An 18-year-old Medinah man faces residential burglary charges after being caught in the act by a DuPage County sheriff's deputy, authorities said. Joseph Stockhausen is being held on $75,000 bail in the DuPage County jail.

The deputy responded to a residential alarm about 3:15 a.m. Tuesday on the 22W100 block of Hillcrest Terrace in Medinah to find lights on in the home and a person inside. Police say the deputy found fresh foot prints in the snow and a broken window. The deputy then captured the suspect, who was trying to hide under evergreen trees.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Stockhausen's next court date is scheduled for Feb. 25 before Judge George Bakalis.
