The intruder, identified as 31-year-old Kenneth Fish, began running through the house as the owner retrieved an unloaded rifle.

According to a police report, Fish begged them to let him go, but the residents instructed him to empty his pockets and lie down with his hands behind his head while they called police.

"There is nothing more useless than an unloaded gun"
