Gerald Heggstrom was sound asleep early one morning when his
wife, Audrey, was startled awake by a loud noise outside. She went
to the living room window, looked out and saw a strange man standing
at the front door. Because of the hour, she went to get her husband.
Heggstrom picked up a .45-cal. pistol and handed it to his wife. "I
came to the door and asked what he wanted," Heggstrom recalled. The
man asked to see "Katy" and when he was told there was no one there
by that name, he walked away. Heggstrom went back to bed, but his
wife was too nervous to sleep. "I was watching TV, and the security
light on the front porch came on 15 minutes later," she said. "I was
in the kitchen and looked out the window, and just then I saw him go
into the garage." After being roused by his wife a second time,
Heggstrom went out, gun in hand, to confront the trespasser. "It got
his attention," he said, adding, "He said he heard voices ... and
was going to check them out." Heggstrom held the suspect at gunpoint
while his wife called the sheriff's office, whose deputies arrived
20 minutes later to take the man into custody.
