Police say a homeowner with a gun and his large dog chased off a burglar over the weekend.

It happened Saturday night in Louisville.

Homeowner Derek Thomas tells WDRB he saw a man going through his truck, so he fired a shot into the air.

Thomas then threatened to use his 150-pound dog named Tank to chase down the suspect if he tried to run.

The man, identified by police as Matthew Conklin, was arrested.

Conklin pleaded not guilty to drug trafficking charges, trespassing and bribery.
