Alabama Armed Citizen Lauded By Sheriff

posted on April 28, 2015

DeKalb County, Ala., Sheriff Jimmy Harris is praising an armed citizen who stopped a business burglary in progress. 

According to media reports, when two men broke into a business in Fort Payne, Ala., last Thursday, an armed citizen saw them carrying merchandise out the back door. Instead of just looking the other way, he called the sheriff’s office and held the duo at gunpoint until deputies arrived.

“I would like to thank the citizen for being so observant and contacting the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office about this incident,” Sheriff Harris said in a press release. “Even though we don’t ever advise a citizen to put their self in danger, we are thankful that he did. The deputies were on scene within seven minutes and were able to make these arrests without incident because of the citizen’s actions.”
