SALINA, Kan. (AP/KAKE) -- A central Kansas man is accused of enlisting an unusual accomplice in a home burglary: his 7-year-old son.

KSAL-AM reports the break-in happened Friday afternoon at a home in Salina.

Police responding to a report of a burglary in progress arrested the father, 32-year-old Adam Branstetter, as the 32-year-old emerged from the house with an electronic cable in his hand and his son by his side.

Investigators allege the father helped the little boy enter the home through a basement window so the child could unlock a door and let him in.

The boy was released to his mother. Charges against Branstetter were pending Monday.
