After Burnett left the trailer, the victim called 911. Police arrived at the scene and found Burnett's thumbprint on a door frame.  He was arrested 11 days later, and at that time, had methamphetamine in his sock and tools that would typically be used to commit burglaries in his backpack, the D.A.'s office says.
