NH woman collars thief, makes him wait for cops
'You sit there and stay there and don't you move,' the woman told the suspect
Police say 63-year-old Linda Carr returned to her Center Harbor home Saturday to find a man walking out of her bedroom with a backpack. He tried to walk past her, but she grabbed him and made him empty his pockets, which contained her jewelry and prescription medication.
Police arrived minutes later and arrested the suspect.
Carr tells WMUR-TV she told the man "You sit there and stay there and don't you move." He replied, "I won't."
Authorities say 29-year-old Richard Royea was arraigned on a burglary charge and released on $25,000 bail.
