A Bullard, Texas, storeowner caught a burglar stealing narcotics from his pharmacy and held him at gunpoint until police arrived. Tom Roper, owner of O.L. Ferrell's Drug Store, heard the store's alarm sound just after 10 p.m. He discovered a man had broken through a window, entered the store and forced open a locked cabinet containing narcotics. The suspect was loading the drugs into a 30-gallon trash can when Roper confronted him. On their way to the scene police were informed that the owner was holding the suspect at gunpoint, said Bullard Police Chief Gary Lewis.
