UPS Driver Helps Nab Burglary Suspect
Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:08 PM CDT
Elizabeth Wallace was dog sitting a couple's two pooches when cops claim Justin Smith (pictured) broke into the homeowner's garage.
A UPS driver alerted a neighbor who ran inside and grabbed his Louisville slugger.
"I hollered at him and said you better drop that stuff now. You better drop that stuff now," said a neighbor.
The church pastor who asked not to be identified called 911 while his partner in brown snapped a photo of Smith.
"He was the central person in all this really," added the pastor.
Minutes later police located a man matching the suspect's description. Cops brought him back to the neighborhood -- and using the amateur cell phone photo -- were able to place him at the scene of the crime.
"Amen, amen," he added.
An unlikely trio working together to keep one neighborhood safe.
KEYE TV put in a request to interview the UPS driver but the company declined due to the active criminal investigation.
Smith is charged with burglary of a habitation. That's a third degree felony.
