A 56-year-old employee of the Illinois attorney general's
office turned the tables somewhat on an intruder to the office's
parking garage. The victim let the man into the garage after having
been convinced that he was there to dispose of the garbage. Once
inside, the intruder indicated he had a gun and intended to rob the
victim. What the man didn't know was that the victim, already
suspicious, had retrieved a .22 handgun from his vehicle. When the
imposter garbage collector attempted to "pick up" cash from the
victim rather than trash from the garage, the employee pulled his
pistol and ordered the would-be robber to the ground. The employee
held the man until the arrival of police, who discovered that the
holdup man possessed only a crack pipe. The employee's gun had been
unloaded and in a case, a legal way to transport it, police said.
