3 Criminals, 2 Incidents, 1 Armed Citizen, 0 Shots Fired

posted on August 20, 2015

Last Saturday night was an eventful one for a Yakima, Wash., homeowner. He and his girlfriend returned home at about 5 p.m. to find that clothing, electronics and cellphones had been stolen from his house. Soon after, the back door opened and two men entered—one of them wearing a necklace, hat and shirt stolen from the residence. The homeowner, a concealed-carry permit holder, held the men at gunpoint and contacted police, who found a stolen vehicle near the residence that they later tied to the suspects.

About two hours later, police were again called to the home when the homeowner returned from dropping his girlfriend off to find someone looking through his windows. The man claimed to be cutting through the yard—but he was behaving erratically, and the homeowner’s yard is completely fenced. The homeowner held the trespasser for police, who arrested him on suspicion of criminal trespass and methamphetamine and paraphernalia possession.
