A would-be burglar was caught red-handed Thursday morning by an armed Milton homeowner, police said.
The break-in happened about 9:45 a.m. at a gated home in the 800 block of Pacific Highway.
The homeowner noticed a few buckets moving near his detached garage and went to investigate. When he opened the garage door, he found the burglar, who was trying on the homeowners jacket.
The homeowner held the burglar at gunpoint until police arrived and arrested him.
