Don’t mess with this suburban mom!

She was out pruning her bushes when she heard the UPS man yelling about a guy who had broken into her neighbor’s house.

When the crook came running past her, she cornered him with her gardening shears.

Other neighbors in her Fresno, California community jumped into help.

Good news — the woman didn’t have to use the gardening shears.
