Armed Texas Man Stops Home Invader

posted on December 10, 2016

An Anderson County, Texas, homeowner on Wednesday used his firearm to stop a man who was breaking into his home. 

According to local media reports, at about 2:15 in the afternoon, the homeowner heard someone trying to break in the door of his home. He fired several shots at the intruder, who fled and was picked up by an accomplice waiting outside in a vehicle.

Apparently the driver was in a big hurry to leave the scene, which didn’t bode well for his vehicle. “While fleeing the property, the driver of the car in question wrecked the car, causing extensive damage to the front grill, the headlight, hood, the passenger door and back fender,” Sheriff Greg Taylor told palestineherald.com. Police are searching for the banged-up car, possibly an Impala, with one or two black males traveling in it.
