ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Two more Albuquerque homeowners found themselves face to face with a burglar and things didn’t end well for the thief. Monday evening a person living on Dorothy Road came home to find 38-year-old Ryan Klein inside.

The homeowner says he kept unlocking the door and Klein kept locking it from the inside. The homeowner was eventually able to get inside and chased Klein to the back yard, where things got physical and neighbors jumped in to help. Klein was able to get away and forced his way into another house and got into a fight with that homeowner.

Officers and a police K9 ended up tracking Klein to a third house. They found him hiding in the back yard. Ryan Klein has more than 30 arrests on his record and he’s already racked up 4 arrests this year.

Klein was sent to the hospital. He’ll be booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center when he’s better.
