ANDERSONVILLE — Ryan Sharp was alerted that something was not right when he noticed a car he did not recognize still running parked at the home of his parents late Thursday afternoon. Sharp then found that the lock to the home had been tampered with and grabbed the shotgun that his father keeps near the back door.
Sharp heard a burglar in the upstairs of the house and waited at the bottom of the staircase for the man to emerge. Minutes later Christopher Pack emerged from the upstairs only to find Sharp and the shotgun waiting on him.
Sharp held the 29-year-old Pack at gunpoint until authorities arrived minutes later to take Pack.
According to authorities Pack was attempting to steal pain medication that Sharp's father takes.
