A Scioto County man was arrested after sheriff's deputies said he was caught burglarizing a West Portsmouth home.

Billy Mosley, 23, was charged with burglary, theft, possession of criminal tools and receiving stolen property in connection with a burglary that occurred Thursday at a residence in the 500 block of West Gate Road, deputies said.

Deputies received a 911 call about a possible burglary in progress. The caller then saw the suspect come out of the house and was able to hold him at gunpoint until deputies arrived.
