APPEARS IN Gun Laws

The Herald, Miami, FL, 11/10/81

Monday, February 1, 1982

A burglar had partially emptied William Allens' Fort Lauderdale, Fla., home and driven away with one load of loot when Allen's daughter discovered the burglary. Police investigated and said the burglar would probably be back to finish cleaning out the place but added that they couldn't leave a stake-out team. So Allen's grandson, Bill Kelley, and a family friend, Arthur Hacker, armed themselves and waited for the criminal to return. Their patience was rewarded in just two hours as the housebreaker strolled in. They captured him and held him for police.
