Shotgun-Toting Texas Granny Stops Suspected Burglars

posted on March 25, 2017

When a New Chapel Hill, Texas, grandmother saw two men stealing her parents’ property, she hopped in her pickup with a 12-gauge shotgun to teach them a lesson. 

The Tyler Morning Telegraph reports Mary Farmer saw a truck pull into her parents’ yard Sunday afternoon, then two men began taking her father’s belongings. “After I noticed they started to load up stuff into their truck, that’s when I drove over there,” said Farmer. When the two men tried to leave, Mrs. Farmer blocked them with her truck, called 911, and held the men at gunpoint.

“I’m sure the dispatcher enjoyed my lecturing,” Farmer continued. “I had plenty of time to tell them how ashamed they should be. They weren't young men—they were older, so they knew better.” No charges were brought against the men—as Farmer explained, “I would’ve pressed charges, but it is my daddy’s property, and he is a Christian man and decided not to press charges.”
