HARKER HEIGHTS (February 19, 2014) A Harker Heights resident held an intruder at gunpoint Tuesday night until police arrived after he awakened to discover that a teenager had broken into his house and was gathering items to steal.

Officers were sent at around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday to the home in the 300 block of Indian Oaks Drive, where they found the resident holding the would-be burglar at gunpoint inside the house.

Officers arrested Keegan Jackson, 19, Harker Heights police Sgt. Roosevelt Wilson said.

Jackson is facing charges of burglary of a habitation, criminal mischief and possession of marijuana and is named in outstanding warrants from Bosque County charging failure to identify, Wilson said.

The resident told investigators he was awakened by noises inside his home and as he got up and looked around, he found a man holding a pillow case.

Police discovered several items from the home inside the pillow case, Wilson said.
