Tyler police say 30-year-old Kyle Garrett Williams apparently was chasing an "imaginary person" into his attic.
The Tyler man was jailed Tuesday on a trespassing charge, with bond set at $10,000. Online records did not list an attorney for Williams, who was captured Monday afternoon.
Police early Monday answered a call from a woman about noises in her water heater closet and a man who fled when she opened the door. Police found a wallet and went to the man's apartment, where his girlfriend was arrested on a drug charge.
Investigators believe that Williams had been doing drugs with his girlfriend.
