ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A 70-year-old Albuquerque man took on a burglar and won.
It happened at Paul Lopez’s home near Carlisle and Morningside earlier this evening.
Lopez says he got home to find a man stealing a TV he got for Christmas, still in the box, and says the man was trying to get away with it on his bike.
“It was ridiculous because he had t his little toy bike, it was a like a kid bike,” Lopez said.
With his adrenaline pumping, Lopez tackled the guy and held him until cops got there.
Police say the suspected burglar is a repeat offender with a long rap sheet.
