FORT MYERS, Fla. - Waking up at 5 a.m., Jaron Ching was following his normal routine. Stepping out into his lanai and smoking a cigarette. However, when he looked down, he was in for a rude awakening.

"I looked down and see in my truck, a couple of guys in my truck! I couldn't help it but say, hey what are you guys doing in my truck," he shouted.

He says they took off, and he instantly grabbed his cell phone and called 9-1-1, but that's not all he did.

"I went after them."

With 9-1-1 on the phone, he chased down the suspects and was able to grab one of them.

Ching says, "One of them got away, I caught the other one. I got him by his pants. He ended up taking his pants off to try and get away."

Ching didn't let go.  He says within minutes police showed up at his home. They had already caught the other suspect who ran away. While Ching did not get hurt, police don't recommend you get involved.
