As Vernice Benny Baynum returned to his South Whittier, Calif., home, he saw a strange car in front of his house, and noted his garage door was ajar. When he entered his home, he heard noises coming from his bedroom. Baynum grabbed a shotgun and started for the bedroom when a man started running towards the front door. "Stop," ordered Baynum. The thug complied and was held at gun point until police arrived.
