BAYTOWN, TX — A Baytown neighborhood is praising one of its own for stopping two alleged would-be-burglars in their tracks. The vigilant neighbor took the law into his own hands when he saw the pair scaling a nearby fence.
Police said the neighbor confronted two men. According to police, he went back into his home and got handcuffs and a gun.
The neighbor reportedly proceeded to handcuff the two men together, and he held them at gunpoint until police arrived.
Roger Boose, 20, and 18-year-old Brandon Flores now face criminal trespassing charges.
Neighbors on Red Cedar Lane described living in a tight-knit community. Many neighbors said this has brought them even closer.
“You have all this stuff that happens in the neighborhoods in Houston, where people are getting shot and killed and raped and murdered. We’re not having it,” said neighbor Suzanne Lumus.
