A neighbor stopped a would-be burglar from making off with a refrigerator from a Lincoln duplex, then the neighbor photographed the suspect making his getaway.

Lincoln authorities say the incident happened just after 2 a.m. Friday morning when the man saw someone trying to steal the fridge. The man shouted at the suspect, who left the fridge and ran.

The suspect took off in his pickup but not before the man used his camera cell phone to take a picture of the 1970's model truck. Police say the truck has a maroon stripe around it and has a wooden plank around the truck bed.

Police are asking anyone with information to give them a call.
