A 40-year-old Lincoln man out of town learned he was the victim of a costly home break-in thanks to an alert on his home security system.
Sgt. Angela Sands said the man told police that he asked his sister to check his home near Cotner Boulevard and R Street and she discovered the home had been broken into and several items had been stolen.
