A man has been arrested after he was caught fishing in the water near his home, according to a sheriff’s office in Maryland.
A man had been fishing at the Fishers’ house on the 300 block of South Main Street, according the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.
The suspect is described as being 5 feet 10 inches tall and wearing a black shirt and dark pants, with brown shoes and a gray backpack, according Sgt. Jason Eubanks of the Montgomery county Sheriff’s office.
Eubank told CBS News he thinks the man is about 25 years old.
The sheriff’s department released this video of the suspect’s fishing activity, which shows him leaving the house and heading toward the water.
Sheriff’s deputies said the suspect got into the water at the south end of the house, where he was spotted by the homeowner.
“We’re very pleased that this individual was apprehended and we’re thankful for the assistance provided by the citizens of the community,” Eubats said.
He did not provide a description of the person.
The fisherman was arrested after the resident called 911 and reported the situation.
A witness told WJLA-TV in Washington, D.C., that the man was fishing at around 6:15 a.m.
The witness told the station he saw the suspect with his pants down and was fishing the small pond he had in his backyard.
Eubeks said deputies were able to track the suspect down to a lake in North Baltimore.
The man was charged with fishing without a license.
The video of his fishing activity is not available online.
