A neighbor keeping a vigilant eye prevented a Ventura resident from being victimized by a burglar.

Police said a person living at Ann and Main streets in Ventura called police after seeing someone leave a neighboring apartment, knowing the person living there was out of town.

Later that day, an officer saw someone on the street carrying duffel bags and stopped to talk with him.

The officer discovered that everything in the bags had come from the apartment in question.

That person was arrested and charged with burglary.
