A Hamilton man is facing charges after police allegedly found him hiding in the garage of a south mountain home.

Hamilton police say a homeowner in the Dickenson Road East area called them at around 2:30 a.m. on Monday morning when they saw their motion lights turn on and looked outside to see someone appearing to attempt to break into parked cars.

Officers arrived and noticed a bicycle propped up against a car parked in someone’s driveway.

When they knocked on the door to speak with the homeowner, they were told that the bike didn’t belong to them.
