Homeowner confronts prospective thief inside car parked in driveway
A 44-year-old Ann Arbor man may have thought it was easy pickings when he entered a parked car early Saturday morning.
However, the homeowner was awake just before 6 a.m. - and came outside to confront him, according to Pittsfield Township Police.
Minutes later, the homeowner had chased the man down, and subdued him until police arrived.
The incident unfolded in the 3600 block of Hillside on the eastern side of the township, near Ellsworth and Golfside.
The homeowner called police at about 5:55 a.m., reporting a larceny in progress - so police were on their way when the homeowner went outside.
Officers said the suspect did not take anything from the car when he tried to run away. They added that he'd entered the vehicle through an unlocked door.
He's now lodged in the Washtenaw County Jail on pending charges of larceny from a motor vehicle.
