PHOTOS: Man arrested after burglarizing vehicle with owner just feet away

A man was arrested early this morning after burglarizing a vehicle, not realizing the owner was watching just feet away. 

Shortly before 2 a.m., a 14th Street homeowner was sitting on his front porch with some friends, when they see a man opening up one of their vehicles and begin rummaging through it.

Police arrived within minutes, and took the man into custody just a few houses down.

The Sheriff’s Department is investigating.
