An attempted burglary of a cabin in Millard Canyon was thwarted Wednesday afternoon by the campground caretaker and a census worker.
According to Lonnie Fehr, the caretaker of the campground, he saw two men running from one of the cabins in the area carrying the cabin owners’ belongings. Fehr said they may have been scared by a census taker who by happenstance was going to the same cabin.
“He [the census taker] yelled, ‘stop, citizen’s arrest,’” Fehr emailed to Altadenablog. “At that point they dropped the items, threw a pipe at him, ran to the truck, and sped very fast out of there.”
