TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A man helped Tyler Police catch a suspected burglar.
Tyler Police say Jose Galvan was spotted breaking into a car at Eastwood Apartments at around 3 o'clock Sunday morning.
Resident Eric McFall tells us he's been the target of four car break-ins, so he decided to stake out the apartment complex.
He says he spotted Galvan trying to open the door to his car, so he ran out of his apartment and held him down until police showed up.
McFall told us, "he was prying on the lock, he popped off the lock but the alarm went off so he started running that way. I caught him and I had to put my figure four on him and locked him up, then he said 'let me call my dad.' "I said, you ain't calling your daddy. You're going to jail!"
Jose Galvan is charged with burglary and is now out of jail on bond.
