Florida man holds burglary suspect at gunpoint until police arrive

A would-be burglar in Florida had his plans foiled Saturday after he encountered an armed homeowner, according to officials.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office said the incident took place in New Smyrna Beach around 11:15 a.m. when a woman called 911 to report a stranger on her property.

When the woman's husband walked outside to check the situation out, he told deputies he found the man standing at the door to his garage with his hand on the doorknob.
