ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- One man who police say broke into a couple homes is now behind bars, and officers say it's all thanks to a neighbor turned crime-fighter.
Rockford Police say someone saw Erick Vazquez, 29, break into a home Friday at 2011 Hawthorne Avenue. The witness gave police a detailed description of the getaway car. Just a few minutes later, police pulled the car over on Broadway and arrested Vazquez.
He's not only charged with the burglary on Hawthorne Avenue, but police also say he broke into a home on Warren Avenue a few weeks ago.
