Yes, breaking and entering is a crime. If a person tries to break into you home and does not succeed but you have them on camera or if the police catch them in the act, they can be arrested and charged by the State. If you saw the person and can identify them, the police should be able to make an arrest ,if you cooperate. If anything, they should speak with the person and investigate this, since you saw them and could describe them, so that should be enough evidence, along with the act that you describe should give them a basis to arrest and charge. If the police refuse, you can contact the department and ask to speak with a Supervisor about this.
