Charlotte man holds burglar at gunpoint

July 20th, 2010 - 4 Comments »

A Charlotte man caught a burglar in the act and held him at his home until officers arrived, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said.

The homeowner told police he returned to his Park Crossing home on Saturday and found a man attempting to steal his pickup truck. He said he pulled into his driveway, blocking the suspect, 19-year-old Terrell Webber, from backing out in the truck.

“Right in his garage, in his pickup truck, and half-backing out of the garage,” Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer Steve Whitesel said.

The victim then got a shotgun and held Webber until police got to the home.
