Monday, August 1, 1988

Ricardo Espinoza, 20, was sleeping in the back of a Tucson, Ariz., dry-cleaning store and awoke to find two burglars making off with clothing through a hole in the roof. First the duo asked Espinoza to unlock a door, then let the employee go off alone for the key. Instead Espinoza returned with a hunting rifle, capturing one robber for police, who charged the individual with first-degree burglary and theft.
