The homeowner followed the man to the Rosita's Bail Bond parking lot, where he confronted him. Investigators say that's when Dressendorfer, who is homeless, left the area.
Richmond police found Dressendorfer hiding behind a tree in someone's backyard in the 500 block of South Second. They say they found more stolen property with him.
Dressendorfer was arrested and has been charged with burglary of a habitation and taken to the Ft. Bend County Jail.
