WA: Armed Homeowner Holds Burglars and Tresspasser for Police
A homeowner held two burglars and a trespasser at gunpoint in two separate incidents within hours of one another over the weekend, Yakima police said.
Police also found a stolen car outside the house, which they tied to the suspected burglars.
Two hours later, police were again summoned to the house, where the homeowner was holding a 34-year-old man at gunpoint.
The homeowner said he had just dropped off his girlfriend and returned to find a man in his yard looking in the windows of his house.
According to the homeowner, the man said he was just cutting across the yard, which the homeowner noted is completely fenced, the affidavit said.
