Cameras at the home showed Hons trying to open the front door before he's seen walking toward a window, officials said.

The deputy found one of the home's windows damaged and reviewed the camera footage which corroborated the homeowner's version of events.

Hons was arrested and taken to jail. Attorney information wasn't available.
