Armed Citizen Angry To Hear That Suspect Is On The Loose

posted on September 26, 2015

Robert Hamm is upset, but not surprised. When the 75-year-old resident of Carter County, Ky., held an intruder at gunpoint until police arrived, he had a feeling the suspect would be free soon. “I’ve seen where they’ve turned people loose who’ve done it four or five times,” Hamm told WSAZ.

Still, he was frustrated to hear that the man he helped apprehend never even made it to jail: Larry Lee Thompson was supposed to turn himself in after checking out of the hospital, but he disappeared instead. The local sheriff’s department said that a lack of resources prevented them from keeping a deputy with Thompson at all times.

“I had him here for them, and they still turned him out,” said Hamm. “He could be down sitting at the foot of the hill waiting for me to come out or anything.” At least now he knows that Hamm has a gun.
