Man stops burglary at neighbor's house

LORAIN, OH (WOIO) - Some people would argue that good neighbors are hard to find, but one Lorain family doesn't have to worry about that.

Lorain Police say Eugenio Fontanes saw a burglar leave his neighbor's E. 29th Street house Monday afternoon with a TV while he was outside doing yard work.

That's when Fontanes chased after the man, who started running when he noticed Fontanes.

The suspect was able to get away, but the stolen items were recovered.

Apparently the homeowners had been having problems with a back door of the house, but have since gotten a security system to stop this from happening there again.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male about 5' 6 " tall with light skin and was wearing a white ball cap, blue jeans and black hooded sweatshirt.
