Burglar caught by homeowner identified
Gilbert Nunez forced to ground by homeowner until police arrived
SAN ANTONIO - An alleged thief has likely broken into his last home for a while.null
Gilbert Nunez was charged with burglary of a habitation with force, after he was arrested Saturday.
How he was arrested, however, is a story that's spreading all over the U.S.
Paul Cavazos said he'd seen Nunez before, so when he saw him walk out of his neighbors home with a TV, he knew he had to do something.
"So I ran upstairs, grabbed my shotgun, and confronted him," said Cavazos.
Cavazos recently installed security cameras were rolling as he came out of his front door, pointed the shotgun at Nunez, and force him to the ground.
That's where he stayed until police showed up and arrested him.
Several national news outlets, including ABC World News with Diana Sawyer and Inside Edition have contacted KSAT 12 about airing the video nationwide.
