Some people in Odessa came together on Sunday to make sure a suspected thief didn't get away.

Just before 8 p.m. Sunday, Odessa police were called out to the 2100 block of East 9th St. to find Jarius Briggs, 30, being held by a group of people.

A victim at the scene told police Briggs tried to steal his car while he was inside of it.

During the struggle, a group of people saw what was happening and ran over to get a hold of him and that's how the police found them.

Briggs was arrested and charged with felony robbery.
