Armed Woman Stops Burglary Attempt

A resident of Keithville, La., disrupted an attempt by four men to enter her home when she showed up with a gun. She told sheriff’s deputies that the hooded suspects fled at her approach and drove away in an SUV. 

According to KEEL, a neighbor had also called the authorities to report the suspicious men on the porch, and deputies were able to locate the getaway vehicle. Inside the SUV they found backpacks, masks, a large knife and some marijuana. 

The four young men in the vehicle have been arrested and charged with burglary. This serves as yet another example of how armed citizens can defend against violent crime without ever firing a shot.
