St. George police responded to a 911 call of a burglary in progress to find the homeowner holding the intruder at gunpoint.
Police Sgt. Sam Despain said that early Thursday morning, the homeowner heard someone moving around inside his house on Lone Rock Drive. When he went to investigate, a pistol in hand, he surprised the 29-year-old male intruder.
"The homeowner … gave [the intruder] orders to lie on the ground and not move. [He] complied with the orders and remained on the ground until officers arrived," Despain said.
