Homeowner Holds Burglar At Gunpoint After His Dog Discovers The Thief

posted on July 8, 2017

Even expert burglars can be tripped up. But an 18-year-old Bloomfield, Kentucky man, caught by a basset hound named “Pig,” might want to consider a new line of work.

WDRB-TV reports that Saturday morning, around 4:30, Chris Stevens and his wife Heather were awakened from their sleep by Pig. “Usually she (Pig) doesn't just bark for any reason,” Chris Stevens said. “So my wife got up to go see what she was barking at.” Stevens said when his wife investigated, she saw a man’s arm appearing to come from her daughter’s room trying to hush the dog.

“Of course she screamed,” Stevens continued. “I jumped up, grabbed my weapon. I walked right into his face.” For 20 minutes Stevens held the suspect—Garrett Ingraham—at gunpoint until Nelson County deputies arrived. Steven’s daughters were visiting family in Chicago, and Ingraham had briefly ransacked their room before Pig discovered the thief. “If it wasn't for her, I don't know what would have happened,” Stevens added.
