Homeowner Surprises Would-be Robber
As the number of resdiential break-ins rise in parts of North Central Florida,one suspect apparently targeted the wrong place.
Deputies say 25 year old James Day broke into a Marion County home intending to steal.
He was confronted by homeowner Calvin Crews, who wasn't happy to see his former employee, in his home without his permission.
"If my family had been here, I'm telling you it would have been a completely different situation you would have had yellow ribbons around the property," says homeowner Calvin Crews.
Crews says he held Day at gunpoint until deputies arrived and arrested him.
Day told authorities he was there to ask for a job, but Crews says he found him with a 5 gallon jug of his coins.
Day faces charges of burglary and grand theft.
