HARKER HEIGHTS, Texas (KWTX) Officers who responded to a report of an early-morning burglary in a Harker Heights neighborhood arrived to find the homeowner chasing the would-be thief down the street.

“In conjunction with this investigation, it has been documented that this burglary may be connected with multiple vehicle burglaries in the area. Police have contacted most of these victims,” Lt. Stephen Miller said in a press release Monday.
