Some Johnson County teenagers are being credited for catching an alleged burglar Friday afternoon.
Sheriff's Deputies say 31 year old Gregory Hicks broke into a home in Van Lear and then ran away when a teenage girl came home. Deputies say two boys heard the girl's screams and chased Hicks, caught him and held him until officers arrived.
Investigators say Hicks stole almost $4,000 worth of jewelry and prescription pills from the home. Investigators believe he is responsible for other recent burglaries in Johnson County.
