Minnesota, home to warn his family of two robbery suspects believed
to be at large in the area, when Mike Stich discovered a man and
woman hiding beneath a blanket in the bed of his pickup truck. With
the police warning in mind, Stich had toted his wife's .25 cal.

truck at gunpoint. Stich commanded the suspects to stand against a
tree while his son ran inside and had Stich's wife call police.
