SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- 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 32-year-old father as he 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 the father, 32-year-old Adam Branstetter, were pending Monday.
