Brief description:

I woke up to my house alarm going off. I armed myself and began to look around and noticed that the garage lights were on. I found the thief inside the garage stealing items from my car. The thief was held at gunpoint until CPD arrived and arrested him. He had several burglary tools on him and had been riding a yellow women's bike that was found laying next to the neighbors car.

    Great Job and yes one for the good guys.
    I want to warn you though as a former police officer, I can tell you that the garage does not qualify under the Castle Doctrine, and Ohio State Law does not allow you to protect your valuables. It barely allows you to protect yourself so please be careful

    Great Job!
    Lonnie is correct about this, but we are going to have to do something and the laws are going to have to be revised if we expect to EVER be able to be afforded the comfort of walking outside our own doors and not be accosted by some idiot that will try to rob or othewise accost us!
    Regrettably, the police cannot be there at all times and we are going to have to be much more pro-active as a community to reduce some of the constant thievery that is occurring area-wide!
