A Stratham, N.H., resident who had sustained five previous
burglaries readied a shotgun and concealed himself after noticing a
car repeatedly driving by his home. When a youthful, knife-wielding
housebreaker climbed through a window, the homeowner confronted him
and held him until police arrived. Two suspected accomplices were
arrested in the incident.
