PHOENIX - A would-be robber messed with the wrong homeowner in east Phoenix.

The man was able to turn the tables on the crook before he could steal anything. 

The silver-haired 66-year-old man foiled a burglary at his home with gusto and pepper spray and now the suspect, Andre O. Poag, is in police custody. He was booked for burglary and possession of burglary tools.
