NC: Homeowners hold burglar at gunpoint

#1

North Carolina again. Man, those people like to capture burglars:

Iredell homeowner fires shot, holds suspect at gunpoint after break-in
According to Sheriff Darren Campbell, the property owners came home and saw Morgan driving a truck from the back of their home.

The suspect told the homeowners that he was working on the house and had gotten a job off Craiglist.

The homeowner told Morgan that he lived at the home and told the suspect to stop the truck, but deputies said Morgan continued to drive slowly toward the homeowner.

Deputies said the homeowner shot at Morgan once and hit his truck's right rear tire.
This was at 11pm, btw. Perp was charged with a lot of felonies.
"The suspect in this incident is lucky we are not investigating another outcome to this case," said Campbell. "This should be a warning to those who want to make victims out of our homeowners, which could be a deadly choice for would-be criminals".
Same sheriff in previous NC post with a similar quote.

Here, there, where ever you like! This is the last one for awhile (although there are some other NC captures) but I have to go paint a mailbox while there is Sun light to be had.

Heh, heh. My bad. I just realized that it’s two different stories. I thought at first that you’d double posted. :oops:

Heh. I had to go check to make sure I didn’t double post. :)

Hey gun control works. Although I don't belive in warning shots. Shooting at a tire is a good way to hit yourself.
Gun control is like stopping drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to drive.

Sooooooooooooo .... will the truck owner sue the attempted murder for destruction of property?
Poor criminal, right? Who's gonna pay for his tire? This was uncalled for.
Everybody deserves a second chance, c'mon. Criminal or not, we should let him go. Afterall, he was stealing only because he wanted it more. *shrug*
