"A quick-thinking neighbor helped thwart a couple of criminals attempting to steal thousands of dollars worth of roofing materials from a southwest Houston home, according to Houston police. Police said a resident noticed two men taking shingles off the roof of a house on Belle Park at Corona around 11:30 p.m. No one lived at the home, which was under renovation, but the homeowner lived nearby. The neighbor called the homeowner, Raul Rivera, who arrived quickly with his hand gun. The two suspects hopped off the roof when confronted by the homeowner. One immediately fled on foot and the other hopped into a minivan parked at the property." (01/10/11)
