CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - In Bobby Frazier's neighborhood, neighborhood watch signs aren't just for show.

In the Mound View neighborhood of Cedar Rapids, Frazier takes the job seriously.

"I normally watch all my neighbors' houses and stuff like that because I'm retired," said Bobby Frazier.

Wednesday, Frazier was a big help to the people next door. He looked out his window and saw a man outside his neighbor's home.

He knows his neighbors and knew the man wasn't one of them -- and was surprised to see the man enter the house.

"Next thing I know he disappeared, and I decided to call 911," said Frazier.

Frazier says after he called police, an officer was here in 20 to 30 seconds.

They caught the man leaving the home and say he was trying to steal from it -- an attempted burglar caught in the act.

Frazier was just doing what he thought was the right thing to do.

"We all should look out for each other," said Frazier. "That's what I did."
