The Armed Citizen® June 3, 2019

A county magistrate in Carlsbad, N.M., was in the parking lot behind the county courthouse when he noticed a man rummaging around inside a clerk’s car. Concerned, the magistrate went back into the building to ask the clerk if a person was supposed to be in her car. When she told him “No,” the magistrate returned to the parking lot. There, the magistrate said he observed the man behaving oddly. The magistrate—a retired 28-year sheriff’s detective—drew his concealed firearm and ordered the man to get down on his knees. The magistrate held him there until police arrived. The man was charged with attempted burglary. (krqe.com, Albuquerque, N.M., 3/19/19)
