PORT CHARLOTTE, Fl. - A Port Charlotte man jumps into action when he sees someone breaking into his neighbor's car.
Deputies say around three Friday morning, Morris Emory was outside his Harbor Boulevard home smoking a cigarette when he noticed an unknown man across the street trying to open his neighbors' car doors.
Morris had his roommate call 9-1-1 while he held the suspect at gunpoint until deputies arrived.
"I thought that was awesome, you still have a sense of community where people are looking out for each other, you know, neighbors still being neighbors. You're in a time when everyone is in a gated community and kind of hiding away but to have someone that's looking out, that's reassuring," says Johnny Martinez.
Deputies arrested the suspect for burglary and loitering. Martinez says this was the first time he's met his neighbor since he and his family have only been living there for a few months.
