| Courtesy Salt Lake City Police Department Salt Lake City police are looking for a suspected burglar who was caught on a homeowner's security camera. On Sept. 11, the suspect allegedly broke into the home near 2600 S. 1500 East and made off with some electronics and personal items, according to the police.

Turns out the ghostly image of a burglar captured by a Sugar House security camera was of an actual flesh-and-bones person, not an apparition.

Last week, we wrote about an unidentified man captured on camera burglarizing a Sugar House home on Sept. 11. The camera caught a clear picture of a suspect who, possibly by some trick of the light or the way the camera captured the image, looked like a ghost — pale as a sheet in his all-white clothing.After the image was shared by police, the burglar was quickly identified. The 22-year-old man is now charged with burglary of a residence, according to Salt Lake City police.
