Copper theft victim catches criminal

Apr. 22, 2008 08:00 PM - 12 News (Phoenix)

Neighbors say Jason Lester had been the victim of copper theft one too many times. Finally, he took matters into his own hands.

On Tuesday night, cops say Daniel Holmes tried to Rob Lester's truck outside his home near Southern and the 101. But what Holmes didn't know was that Lester, a construction worker, was waiting for him.

Police say Lester installed a camera on his roof and a sensor or a laser near his truck. When the alarm went off at 4 am, Lester confronted Holmes.

Before cops arrived, neighbors say Lester shot up Holmes' white pick-up truck. Holmes was arrested and taken to jail on one count of misdemeanor theft.

Police say they're still investigating and depending on what comes out of their investigation, they may charge Lester with shooting at the suspect.

I saw a pic of the truck. That dude shot the crap out of it. At least a dozen bullet holes in the hood. I guess lead isn't as highly prized as copper...
