A would-be thief in Nanaimo got a little more than he bargained for when he decided to break and enter into a woman’s home on Sunday night.
Jamie Fawcett was asleep at 2 a.m. when she heard glass breaking from her window.
“I thought maybe my cats jumped up and maybe knocked a whole bunch of glasses over so I went to the back of the house, see a guy hanging half out my window. And then I yell at him ‘What are you doing?’ and then he jumped out my window. I had no shoes on or anything, but I ran after him out the back door.”
Fawcett encountered the man a short time later and tackled him to the ground with a foot sweep, and with the help of a male driver managed to call 911 and arrest him.
The thief now faces one charge of break and enter.
