Neighbor follows burglary suspect, points him out to police

TEMPLE, TX - With the help of a neighbor of the victim, Temple Police tracked down a man they think may have burglarized a home and found he had other outstanding arrest warrants pending for him as well.

Wednesday,  police were called to the 2600 block of Marlandwood Circle where the caller said that a man had just broken into his house and that a neighbor was following him on Forest Trail.

As officers began driving and searching through that area, they were flagged down by the neighbor who pointed out a man wearing a pink hoodie as the one he had been following.

An investigation at the scene led officers to believe the man was indeed the one who had broken into the home and 18-year-old Aaron David Johnson was arrested.

The officer stated that he recognized Johnson as having another active arrest warrant and took him into custody.

He was booked into the Bell County Jail on charges of theft of property, unlawfully carrying a weapon and resisting arrest, search or transport.

He was also being screened by the District Attorney for another possible felony charge.
