Home Contractor Cuts Robbery Short With Revolver

posted on October 20, 2016

A woman was picking up a pizza with her 3-year-old when three criminals decided she would make an easy mark and decided to follow her home. But they weren’t expecting the contractors. 

While the suspects were planning their break-in, a worker and his brother were inside completing a home makeover. But when one of the workers went out to his vehicle to cut a piece of wood, the renovation took a twist. “I walked to my truck, and that's when the one guy walked up,” the contractor, James Jones, told WREG in Memphis. The suspect was soon joined by his two accomplices, and as one of them held a shotgun, the other two demanded his keys. 

“He told me to back up and as soon as I got away from this guy's line of sight, I pulled my weapon,” Jones said. By the time Jones’ brother Jeremy scrambled to the scene, Jones was already holding the car thief at gunpoint. Jeremy said, “I walked over, and told him to get on the ground or he's going to die. He laid on the ground and I tied him up.” 

Within minutes, officers arrived to arrest a hogtied Brendan Bryant. His accomplices escaped on foot.
