LUBBOCK COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

A man caught burglarizing a business early Wednesday morning got a surprise. According to officials with the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office, the suspect was held at gunpoint until deputies could arrive.

It happened around 7:30 a.m. at Jake's Construction in the 8200 block of C.R. 2500. 

The owner of the business said the building owner encountered the burglar as he was about to steal a trailer with a welder and two toolboxes inside. It was overall worth $5,000. 

The building owner then held the burglar in his truck until police could arrive. 

Apparently, this was the burglar's second trip to the business. He stole $1,000 worth of panels the first time. 

The suspect's vehicle was towed from the scene and the suspect was arrested and charged with burglary.

Lt. Bryan Taylor with Lubbock County Sheriff's Office says the suspect's name is not being released at this time.
