In Redding, an alleged thief threatens to shoot a couple after they catch him stealing out of their garage.

It happened early Saturday morning on Evergreen Way in Redding.

According to police, Robert Bennett saw the suspect 28-year-old Jacob Adkinson fleeing from inside his closed garage.

Bennett confronted Adkinson, who let him look inside his backpack.

Bennet located his stolen wallet, then called 911.

He tried to keep the Adkinson until police arrived.

That's when Atkinson reportedly said if they didn't allow him to leave, he would kill them.

Redding Police officers arrived shortly after and took Adkinson into custody. It turns out he did not have a weapon
