Mike Martin of Copper Fork, West Virginia, grabbed his
.30-30 and went to investigate after noticing suspicious activity
early one morning at the home of a neighbor who had been killed in
an accident several weeks earlier. Martin found several men removing
items from the house. He got the drop on two and held them for
police, who also caught two more suspects.
