TX:Armed Homeowner Stops Burglary
Strange that the reporter casts doubt on the couple's statement that the knife did not belong to them.
According to the affidavit, the man said he walked to the front of the house and saw a silver Chrysler Cruiser near the sidewalk. He then saw a male subject standing near the property and immediately pointed a gun at the suspect and told him not to move. The suspect said he was coming from a friend's house and began to move away from the house towards the street.
Court documents say the homeowner then exited house with his shotgun as the suspect ran to his vehicle. The man hit the driver side window with the butt of the shotgun and the suspect fled the scene.
The couple then found the TV on the side of the house in the backyard, along with a knife that they claimed did not belong to them.
