David Chen, the 35-year-old owner of the Lucky Moose Food Mart in Chinatown, chased down a man who had allegedly stolen a tray of potted plants on Saturday.

Another employee and his brother-in-law who was returning from a delivery helped grab the suspect. They tied his hands and feet and threw him into the back of the delivery van.

I dunno.
I would think that that it's a job hazard for a thief.
Just like getting shot by a thief is a job hazard for a cab driver or convenience store clerk.
Bravo to David Chen, boo hoo to the thief...and a giant GMAFB to the rules of law enforcement that charges Mr. Chen with more than the thief for protecting his business and goods.

(P.S.: The photo is not Mr Chen's store or thief. It's random from google images.)
