On Monday, a homeowner took matters into his own hands when he caught a man burglarizing his home.

Fairview Township Police Department responded to the 800 block of Lexington Place for an active burglary.

The homeowner told police that he arrived home and found an intruder inside.

The homeowner was able to hold down Dierich until police arrived.

Property from the home was found in Dierich's van.
