Jim Durrett caught a thief on Saturday.

The thief, a 16-year-old boy, snatched Durrett’s iPhone while Durrett was waiting at the Lindbergh MARTA station. Durrett, Executive Director of the Buckhead Community Improvement District, chased after him. After he caught the boy, Durrett vowed to teach him a lesson.

Durrett hopes to learn from the experience, too.
