Police tell 11 News they got a helping hand from a security guard overnight. They managed to arrest a man they say was breaking into cars.

The security guard was patroling a group of apartments located behind King Soopers on Morning Sun Drive near Austin Bluffs and Academy.

According to police the security guard saw a man breaking into cars and was able to help police make an arrest.

Police tell 11 News this area is targeted by criminals often and they hope this arrest is the start of a major crackdown in that area near Austin Bluffs and Academy.

    well concerned citizen, police HOPE that this is a trend as it hasn't always been. Sadly most security guards dont really do much of anything except lock doors and "show the flag". As for why it is a beginning why dont you ask yourself and all the other voters who have for the last at least 8 years voted down an increase in the budget for CSPD, they are short staffed and overrrun with crime so thats why they cant respond to every tom, dick, and harry who thinks a crime is happening. a question to you sir or ma'am; did you vote? if you answered yes feel free to continue complaining as you are to blame. if you didnt vote please kindly quiet down as those of us who did vote are actually trying to make a difference.

    Excuse me! Police "hope" this is the start of a crackdown on crime in the area? They hope? Can we get some questions asked here, like "Why doesn't CSPD respond quickly when security people and citizens report the same kind of thing at Monterrey and Delta? Does CSPD really "hope" this is the beginning of a crackdown, or are they going to divert some ticket-writing resources to monitor more crime prone locations and maybe catch a bad guy or two?
