A man comes home to find a burglar in his house in Wilmington.

Police say the homeowner went into his home Friday afternoon in the 800 block of Woodlawn Avenue, and found a man with a gun inside.

The homeowner then ran into the street and flagged down an officer on patrol. The officer saw 24-year-old Garland Coleman run down the street and chased him. Police say Coleman threw a stolen gun away in a trash can as he ran.

Other officers caught Coleman. Police discovered he's a convicted felon prohibited from owning guns. He's in Howard Young Correctional Institution in lieu of $89,000 cash bail.
