New York Giants starting guard Justin Pugh helped Jersey City police in New Jersey catch an apparent thief this past week.

Pugh, who lives in Jersey City, recently tweeted a video and photo of a man who had been stealing packages in his neighborhood, including approximately $3,000 worth of custom suits and cast-iron pots from his front door, according to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News.

He also filed a police report and began wandering the area with a neighbor in the hopes of finding the thief.

Thanks to Pugh's detective work, a Jersey City officer recognized the man while on patrol Tuesday and arrested him on burglary charges.

"I'm like CSI," Pugh joked. "I'm starting the community watch. In five days, I helped catch a guy who's been stealing stuff for the past six months."
