An Edwardsville man who returned home to find a burglar inside was able to hold the man there until police arrived, said Edwardsville Police Lt. Scott Evers on Monday.
Joel Demunbrun, 21, arrived at his home at 268 Wyandotte St. in Edwardsville at about 12:48 a.m. on Saturday and interrupted the man as he was burglarizing his home. Evers said Demunbrun called Edwardsville police on his cell phone but could give only his address before hanging up.
When the dispatcher reconnected with him, Demunbrun said that he had just interrupted a burglary and was struggling with the intruder, according to a news release from Edwardsville police.
