A Mineral Wells man caught a teenager trying to break into his car, and he wasn’t going to let it happen–not on his watch.
The Mineral Wells Index says 31-year-old Joel Crawford spotted the teen breaking into his Jeep at 4:30 in the morning Monday, grabbed a baseball bat and pursued the suspect on foot with bat in hand. The footchase went up Highway 281 to a home on 16th street where the boy tried to hide under a pickup truck. Crawford took the kid by the arm and marched him back to the home where police were waiting.
The was turned in to Juvenile Probation.
