Burglar messed with the wrong business owner

OROVILLE, CA - An Oroville business owner caught a man who broke into his store and stole lawn mowers early Saturday morning.

Oroville police officers responded to Air Cooled Unlimited, at 2816 Olive Highway, around 3:27 a.m. after getting a call from the store owner saying he was holding the suspect at gunpoint, Sgt. John Bruschi said.

The business owner said he and an employee were camping out in the back fenced yard so they could deter a burglary after the business was broken into several times in the last few weeks. During the stake out, the owner said they saw the suspect cut through the fence and then take two lawn mowers.

Bruschi said the owner and the employee then approached the suspect and held him at gunpoint until officers arrived.
