Commerce Police Department:

COMMERCE (KYTX) -  A Commerce man found himself detained by a homeowner armed with a gun.  
On January 12, 2013 just before midnight, Commerce officers were dispatched to the 2800 block of Bois D'arc in reference to a man breaking into vehicles.  Once on scene, officers observed that a man was being detained by the homeowner.  The man was identified as 32 year old Commerce resident Moses Miller.  

According to the homeowner, he was alerted by his daughter that she saw Mr. Miller inside her friend's car.  Mr. Miller was then observed breaking into another car in the residence's driveway.  That is when the homeowner confronted the suspected car burglar and detained him at gun point until the arrival of police officers.  

Mr. Miller was subsequently arrested on an outstanding Commerce Police Department Warrant for Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and two counts of Burglary of a Motor Vehicle.  
Mr. Miller was booked in to the Commerce Police Department and was later transported to the Hunt County Jail.   Mr. Miller posted two bonds of $2000 for the two counts of Burglary of a Motor Vehicle and is out on bond pending trial.
