Ocean City, Maryland, businessman and resident Stephen
George was walking his dog late one night when he noticed two men in
a passing vehicle turn off the headlights and swing back toward his
business, Boat Doctor Marine, Inc. After watching the pair squeeze
through the fence, George went to his house nearby and retrieved a
stainless steel, .357 Mag. revolver. Surprising the men who were
hefting new batteries back to their car George commanded, "Hold it
right there." He then instructed the pair to keep their hands in
plain view and marched them back to the business to dial 9-1-1.
Sheriff Charles Martin later said, "I think it was a good, common
sense move on his part. We've got limited manpower, and we need all
the common sense help we can get."
