A 30-year-old man has turned himself in to Biddeford police to face burglary and theft charges after a bungled burglary attempt in Falmouth.

Police said Christopher Girard, 30, was engaged in a burglary Friday at a house on Merrill Road when the homeowner returned, confronting Girard and two accomplices. The burglars were trying to escape when their getaway car got stuck in the snow.

Girard jumped in the homeowner’s Lexus and drove off, while the other two ran away on foot. Police caught the two who were on foot soon afterward.

The car was found Saturday in Biddeford and police distributed Girard’s picture in an effort to arrest him.

Girard turned himself in to Biddeford police Monday night. He was arrested on outstanding warrants form Scarborough charging him with burglary and theft there. He will also be charged with burglary, theft of a car and reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon, after he allegedly bumped the Falmouth homeowner while driving off in his car, police said.
