An east Salt Lake City couple surprised a burglar on their front porch and then detained him until police arrived.
Salt Lake City police Detective Veronica Montoya said the drama played out just before 8 p.m. Wednesday when the woman returned to her home near 1200 East and 700 South, pulled into her driveway and spotted the man on a bicycle.
When asked what he was doing on the property, he quickly left. Moments later, however, she and her husband spotted the suspect getting out of a neighbor's vehicle, having taken $3 from inside. He dropped the money when the couple confronted him.
