An Omaha resident who found an intruder in his garage early Saturday offered some words of wisdom to the young man as they waited for police to arrive.

Rob Wegman, who lives near 212th Street and West Maple Road, said he told the man that if he wanted nice things, he should get a job.

Police arrested the intruder, Bruce Linson, 22, and an alleged accomplice, Tyler Robart, 20, both of Fremont. They were booked into the Douglas County Jail on suspicion of burglary.

Wegman said he held a 12-gauge shotgun on the intruder in a detached garage behind his home while his wife called police. The homeowner said he was alerted to something amiss in his garage when his dog, Maxwell, began barking about 1 a.m.
