Lottie Eldridge, 60, had hunted for years near her Ossippee,
N.H., home, so gun-handling was nothing new to her. But she took on
bigger game than deer or bear when she spotted a pair of burglars at
work on a nearby home. She called police, then retrieved her .38
cal. revolver. She apprehended one burglar and held him for police,
who said her action helped crack a two-state antique burglary ring.
