Employee takes down burglar in Sherman

By  | 

SHERMAN, Tex. -- A would-be thief got more than he bargained for over the weekend. It happened at Ellis Truck and Auto in Sherman late Saturday night.

A worker said he noticed movement on the security camera, so he went outside to check it out, while his girlfriend called 9-1-1.

What he found was a suspect breaking into cars, trying to steal stereo equipment.

The worker confronted the man at gunpoint and held him until police arrived.

"I saw somebody sneaking behind the white van over here. I told him to get down on the ground or Iā€™d shoot. He complied, we called 9-1-1, and the police showed up," said employee David Chumbley.

Police arrested the 19-year-old suspect and took him to the Grayson County Jail.
