Around 1:30 this afternoon police were called to Bird Blvd near Lake Fort Phantom.

A homeowner saw a pickup outside his home, the suspect got out of the car and took a couple of garbage bags out of his garage.

The homeowner chased after the suspect, while his wife called the police from their home.

The suspect pulled over to showed the homeowner that he had a rifle in his car, so the homeowner realized it wasn't worth it anymore.

Police believe that the pick up is a stolen vehicle from Lubbock and have a description.

The homeowner wasn't worried about what was in the garbage bags, because it was just recyclables, he just doesn't think people should get away doing things like this.

APD is still searching for the suspect.
