Charlotte Construction Workers Tie-Up Thief Onto Scaffolding in Shocking Citizen’s Arrest (Video)


Several construction workers in Uptown Charlotte took the law into their own hands this past week after an alleged thief tried to steal from their work truck.

Yolian Ortiz posted the cell-phone footage of the workers were tying up the man to some scaffolding to wait for police.

“I gotta do what I gotta do to hold you. You got no business in my truck,” one of the construction workers said.

The citizen arrest tactics successfully held the man until CMPD officers arrived to take him into custody.
