An armed Ohio homeowner on Sunday stopped a would-be robber that he found on his property and held the man until police arrived.

According to local police, the man said he saw two thieves on his property, grabbed his gun and confronted them. One ran away, but he managed to hold the other at gunpoint until police arrived.

According to local radio station WDTN, deputies found what they believe to be methamphetamine, pills they suspect to be morphine, a bag of possible marijuana and equipment used for measuring drugs near a car driven by the suspect. The man is being held in the Mercer County jail on $125,000 bond, and authorities are still searching for his accomplice.
