The homeless man who burglarized the home of a 49-year-old Hartranft woman turned himself in, police said.
The woman came home on March 30 around 10 a.m. and found Sabu Shealy, 34, going through her personal belongings inside her house at the 1300 block of West Silver Street, police said.
As the man fled, the woman snapped a picture using the camera on her cell phone.
Shealy turned himself into police after he noticed media reports that splashed his picture in print and on television screens across the city.
He is charged with burglary and criminal trespass.
