Luck was with an Orem police officer Monday morning but not with an Orem burglar.

Officer Rob Christensen decided to take up watch outside Ken's Discount Hobby, 1409 S. State, after a series of break-ins had occurred in the early morning hours at other State Street businesses.Shortly after Christensen settled in, an Orem man walked up to the store and attempted to gain access. A foot chase ensued and the burglar was apprehended, said Orem Police Lt. Bob Conner.
