BELLEVUE, KY (FOX19) -

A Bellevue man took matters in to his own hands after he found a man outside his home before dawn on Sunday.

Ryan Schmidt heard his car alarm go off around 4 a.m., prompting him to go outside with his shotgun. Schmidt, who has police training, then found a man hiding in his yard and ordered him to get on the ground.

The suspect, James Fogle, was held at bay by Schmidt until authorities arrived and arrested the 19-year-old for trespassing and other charges.

Bellevue residents claim there has been a string of car thefts in the area, and one resident says she believes Fogle could be the suspect.

Police did not comment Sunday on details of the arrest.

Fogle is also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, alcohol intoxication and probation violation. He is being held in the Campbell County Detention Center.
