Would-Be Thief Caught In The Act, Held By Victim
BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A Boise man who caught someone trying to steal two guns from his unlocked pickup chased him down and sat on him until police arrived.
Police say 46-year-old Allen L. Berry faces three felony counts of burglary along with charges of grand theft and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
The victim called 911 at 3 a.m. Saturday to report he caught someone breaking into his pickup truck. The victim said Berry dropped the guns and ran, but he chased him down. When officers arrived, the victim was sitting on Berry.
Berry also is suspected of stealing small items from several other unlocked vehicles in the same apartment parking lot.
Berry was expected to make an initial court appearance Monday afternoon.
