BEDFORD, Texas, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- A Texas man who called 911 when an armed homeowner interrupted his burglary was sentenced to seven years of probation and 200 hours of community service.

State District Judge Craig Towson also sentenced Christopher Moore, 41, of Bedford, to pay a $2,000 fine Monday after he pleaded guilty to burglary of a habitation, the Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram reported Tuesday.

Moore was accused of breaking into a Springtown home around 12:30 a.m. Dec. 4 and the 38-year-old homeowner said he and his wife awoke to find a man standing in their bedroom.

The homeowner grabbed his gun and chased the man out of his home. The burglar got into his pickup truck, but complied with the man's orders for him to drop his keys.

Moore called 911 from inside his pickup truck, but the homeowner had already called 911.
