Paul Cavazos said he’d been waiting for the moment for a long time -- and on Saturday, when he saw the man who he thinks burglarized his home, he brought his shotgun with him.

Cavazos’ security camera above his front door captured the confrontation.

In the video, you can see a man carrying a flat-screen television walk into the frame. Cavazos comes out his front door, shotgun leveled at the man he accused of burglary.

He forces him to the ground, and keeps him there until the police get there and arrest him.

“It was rough there for a while because we were constantly looking over our shoulders,” said Heidi Uriostegui, Cavazos’ girlfriend who lives with him.

Cavazos said the man had burglarized several other homes in the area, as well.
