CCP Holder Helps Halt Car Thieves In Utah

posted on March 21, 2017

A homeowner was awakened at 4 a.m. last Friday by strange noises. That’s when he spied a couple of thieves rifling through his car, so he called the police—and grabbed his gun. 

Cottonwood Heights Police Chief Robby Russo told KSTU-Fox 13 the homeowner, identified only as Ryan, “Walked out and saw two guys burglarizing his vehicle, confronted them with his weapon, and held them at bay. The bad guys threatened to call the police on him, and he said, ‘That’s great, I already called them’ and … they take off running.”

One of the thieves was tackled by police and arrested. The accomplice escaped, but police plan to make a second arrest soon. The thieves were responsible for several burglaries in the area, and the suspects’ car was loaded with stolen items. Ryan, a concealed-carry permit holder said, “I’m happy to help, I’ll do it again: I don’t like liars or thieves.”
