Man Holds Napping Burglar At Gunpoint

posted on June 26, 2015

It wasn’t a typical Tuesday morning in the Terrell household in Manchester, N.H. When John Terrell went downstairs to make coffee, he returned with a warning to his wife: Call the police.

John had discovered an intruder sleeping in one of the upstairs guest rooms. Not only did the burglar take a nap on the job, he left a pretty big clue for the homeowners as to his presence—his shoes were sitting in the hallway outside the room he was sleeping in.

While Elinor Terrell called the police, John held the intruder at gunpoint until they arrived. Renaud “Junior” Plaisir, 28, was charged with burglary and receiving stolen property. To Elinor, the most troubling item that he stole was her husband’s wallet. “He walked in on us asleep,” she said in amazement. “I can't believe we slept through it.”
