Why would you...

Why would you attempt a break in and theft of a home of known gun owners and hunters? Because you are stoned out of your mind on drugs.

What happens to said criminal? They are shot at, chased down and held at gunpoint until deputies arrive.

Do not mess with a well armed family. We do not play!

At just before 1 am this morning a guy, stoned on drugs attempted to steal and break in at my daughters house. Our 10 year old grandson heard him and woke her up. She called us, called 911 and armed herself and the 14 year old.

The guy was in her horse trailer that she had backed up to the house, as she was getting ready to go back to the Dixie trail ride. He was attempting to steal a large generator, and already had the gas cans out. She opened the door, shouted a warning, and the guy took off running. She fired on him with a shotgun. She was worried about hitting a horse as they were at the fence.

Douglas and I got there, and used our trucks to chase him down.... Redneck you know... Douglas caught him, and got him out of the fence and onto the ground. We held him at gunpoint until the deputies arrived.

We are pressing all possible charges and some are felonies.
The strangest thing.... The guy was in his underwear, he had his clothes, but he wasn't wearing them. He is lucky to be alive!

Y'all are my heroes!!!! So many people are scared of their shadow and either can't, or won't deal with their fears. I am especially proud of your daughter and grandsons. I always preach to my family that you have to deal with the situation when it happens. I'm glad everyone is ok.

The thugs rely on people being to scared to do anything, and in rural areas it takes a while for help to arrive. They usually get away before law enforcement arrives. Not this time.

Way to go. I keep the twice barrel loaded with Remington # 4 magnum buckshot and standing beside my bed. Each shell contains 41 pellets, that's 82 pellets coming at you at close range. I have seen what a claymore mine will do to a human, and hope I never have to use the buckshot. But I can guarantee you I don't run.

these drugged out people don't use their brain like normal folks.. all they think about is how they are going to get their next "fix". Its really sad in a way, because i've know some good folk who ruined their lives because of drugs..

I'm like Terry, keep a sawed off twice barrel loaded with #4 buckshot by the bed and that's usually the first one my wife will grab since it stays on her side of the bed.

The bond was set at $65,000. He is facing numerous charges, several are felonies. There have been several break ins in the community and we hope this helps stop them.

That's where she wants it, she has a pistol in her night stand but feels more comfortable shooting the shotgun. Besides a have two .40's on my side ...one in the nightstand and one on top and a 870 rem on my side.

She shot at him when he ran? Was he hit?

No, he wasn't hit, she shot above him. We are well aware of the law. But it don't hurt ti put the fear in them. She actually shot as he came out of the trailer side door, but that put her aiming at the horses. She was using a shotgun.

Trespass, burglary of a dwelling, there are a couple of others. Public indecency, or something like that, some kind of public intoxication. I know there ended up being 2 felony charges.

Bond was 65,000, he is still in jail.

They heard it. The youngest is scared now. He won't stay home alone, he is scared of every noise. The sense of security at home has been taken away.

There should be a penalty to pay for that too. Bless him.
