Richard Frederick, Jr., noticed something was wrong when he
opened up his Pewaukee, Wis., office. Finding several articles out
of place and hearing noises, Frederick got a shotgun, then announced
that fact to the unseen intruder. The man surrendered and Frederick
held him at gunpoint until the police arrived.
