Police say they caught a serial burglar in the act — a sex act.

Officers found Robert Calloway in the basement of an apartment building he had broken into, police said.

Authorities said Calloway was having sex with a woman. He was charged with Monday’s break-in in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood, as well as in three others in recent weeks. The woman, Vera Morris, also was charged.

Calloway, 40, matches the description of a man caught on surveillance tape breaking into the basements of other apartment buildings, police said.

In all the cases, Calloway is accused of prying the locks from storage area doors. Sometimes nothing was reported missing; in other cases, a leaf blower, gas can, and tool box were taken, police said. It was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney.

Police said Calloway and Morris had opened several storage units in the apartment building’s basement and dragged a mattress into a common area. Morris, 47, was charged with criminal trespassing, police spokeswoman Tammy Ewin said.
