CLIFTON TOWNSHIP — A man armed with a gun foiled a burglary at his neighbor’s home in Lackawanna County, according to troopers.

State police say Aaron Castro, 29, of Clarks Summit broke into a home on Peat Bog Road near Gouldsboro Wednesday.

According to troopers, a man who lives next door confronted Castro. Castro ran out of the house and took off in his truck, dragging the neighbor who tried to stop him. The man shot Castro’s tire, then let go.

Police caught him a short time later.

Castro was arrested and is locked up in Lackawanna County.
