The Armed Citizen® October 21, 2016

You’ve heard of being in someone’s doghouse? Well, criminal behavior put one suspect on top of someone’s doghouse in Lady Lake, Fla. A homeowner was pulling into his driveway, with his wife and mother-in-law in the car, when he noticed that the door of a client’s car he was repairing was open. A moment later, he saw a trespasser—dressed only in a tank top and underwear—running away from the car and into the backyard, busting open a gate in his attempt to flee. The armed citizen pulled his gun and directed the thief to freeze. The suspect, who had climbed on top of a doghouse to try to get away, stayed on that perch until the police arrived and took him into custody. (Sun Sentinel, Palm Beach, FL, 7/21/16)

A homeowner was awakened around 4:30 a.m. by the sound of a suspect entering his home through the garage. When the burglar saw the homeowner he proceeded to flee the residence. The homeowner called 9-1-1, located the intruder hiding underneath a vehicle, and held him at gunpoint until police arrived. According to police, the suspect had allegedly previously broken into the victim’s vehicle and garage, and had items in his possession that belonged to the homeowner. The burglar was charged and is now in jail. (The Monroe News, Monroe, MI, 7/6/16)
