The Daily Oklahoman, Oklahoma City, OK, 2/7/96

Saturday, June 1, 1996

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, resident David Sloane expected the thieves to return for the items needed to operate the electronic equipment they had stolen the night before. Sloane was waiting behind a fence in freezing temperatures when he heard his car alarm wail. The criminals scattered and Sloan, a former Texas deputy, grabbed his .45 and a pair of handcuffs and tracked the suspects' footprints through snow to a neighbor's house, where he found two teenage brothers hiding in some bushes. One froze as Sloane commanded. The other fled, but was later picked up by police. "They grabbed the wrong stereo," Sloane said. "Not all victims are passive."
