The Armed Citizen® March 25, 2019

thief got more than he bargained for after stealing a sport utility vehicle in Missoula, Mont. Just after 8 a.m., local deputies were called to investigate the theft, and in their search for the offender, the officers spotted the SUV and attempted to pull it over and apprehend the illicit driver. However, he fled through several neighborhoods and a construction site before crashing into a mailbox. Witnessing the pursuit and crash outside his window, a nearby resident armed himself in case he was drawn into the confrontation. And sure enough, the carjacker chose to force his way into that very house, where he was met by the vigilant homeowner and held there until the police arrived to arrest him on multiple charges.
