A Milwaukee mailman wasn't about to back down when two thieves attempted to take a package he was delivering.

The mailman chased after one of the thieves and tackled the teen to the ground. According to FOX6 in Milwaukee, it happened in Kelsey Lamb's backyard.

"I just saw these two men going back and forth. One was a mailman and he was screaming 911 so I actually called 911," she told FOX6.

Neighbors heard the commotion and ran out to help hold the would-be thief until police arrived.

Inside that package were prescription drugs postmarked from Las Vegas.
