Two Employees Capture Burglar

Associated Press - August 7, 2013 7:24 am

Police say two alert employees caught and held a man who allegedly was trying to burglarize a Cargill plant in Topeka.

Topeka police Sgt. Steve Roth says the employees saw the man break into a fenced-in area that holds heavy equipment on Tuesday night. When the employees ran into the area, the man was “messing with” a utility vehicle.

Roth says the man took off running but the employees caught him, subdued him and then held him until police arrived.

Roth says that the employees did all the work and “I just showed up and applied the cuffs.”

Great job more private citizens need to catch these crooks.

I’m surprised the cops didn’t arrest the employees.
