A Thief At An Eastside Walmart Was Caught And Tied Up By Two Good Samaritans
A man found out the hard way that crime doesn’t pay, and sometimes it can get you tackled and tied up by Good Samaritans. Two men heard a woman screaming in the parking lot of an eastside Walmart this past weekend and realized that her purse had been stolen.
Another customer recorded the men who had run down 19-year-old Daniel Loera and tied him up with ropes. The customer said she thought there had been a hit and run, but it turns out Loera had allegedly stolen a woman's purse. The men and Loera can be seen in the video sitting on the curb waiting for police who showed up about 10 minutes later.
El Paso Police say if you see something like that happening, pull out your phone and get a picture of the suspect or a license plate and call 9-1-1 because the person might be armed.
