When Athens County Sheriff's deputies responded to a burglary call last night on Elliotsville Road, they were met with an unusual sight -- the suspect was hogtied and unconscious.

 
Sheriff Pat Kelly says the homeowner returned to the house around 9 p.m. and found a person leaving out a back window.
 
The owner chased the suspect into the woods behind the house, eventually catching him.
 
Another person with the homeowner called 911.
 
The 21-year-old male suspect will be charged with burglary.
 
Kelly says the case is still under investigation and charges will be filed on a second person.
 
No charges will be filed against the homeowner.
