Arthur Lindsay of Windsor, Mo., lost his house to a fire and has been keeping his salvaged belongings in a shed out back. As if that wasn’t enough of a blow, his neighbor soon reported seeing two men burglarizing the shed. “I just want to know who would steal from your property after a fire?” he mused.
Lindsay put in a webcam to monitor the property, and it turned out that the culprits weren’t done. The next day they returned in broad daylight—but this time the owner was ready. He approached them with a pistol and ordered them to lie down until law enforcement arrived. “You bet I’d do it all over again …” said Lindsay. “You just don’t do that to people.”
