Giants’ Justin Pugh Helps Cops Catch Thief In His Neighborhood (Video)
Giants guard Justin Pugh might have the option to pick up a career in law enforcement if his NFL career gets cut short.
The New Jersey resident recently posted on Twitter a clip and pic of a man who had been caught on camera stealing packages in his town of Jersey City. Pugh himself had been robbed of $3,000 worth of clothing and kitchen supplies left on his front door.
Pugh went so far as to wander the neighborhood looking for the guy, but it was this clip he tweeted that got the big results:
So this is the second time this same guy has stolen a package off my porch. Also stole one off my neighbors. Jersey city help me out pic.twitter.com/hthkqeIdcn

He sent out this security photo as well that gives a clearer look at the perp’s face:
Update. Someone sent me this picture. This was on first street in hoboken. Just down the hill from my house.I think it could be the same guy pic.twitter.com/mXSxs6PeOf — Justin Pugh (@JustinPugh) September 2, 2017
Following these tweets, a cop recognized the man walking down the street and nabbed him.
“I’m like CSI,” Pugh said after learning of the arrest. “I’m starting the community watch. In five days, I helped catch a guy who’s been stealing stuff for the past six months.”
