Ronnie Breland and his son, Joshua, drove out to some property the
family owned after a neighbor warned them that trespassers had been
seen in the area. Breland drove a pickup truck, and his son rode
beside him, armed with a 9 mm pistol. Breland discovered two men
standing by a truck hidden in some trees. As the Brelands approached
the trespassers, one man crawled deeper into the woods as the other
raised his arm, holding a gun in his hand. Joshua Breland raised his
gun in response. When his father yelled to the interloper, "Hit the
ground or you're dead," the younger Breland said the man hit the
dirt immediately, and the other man crawled back out of the woods on
his belly. "I held them at gunpoint while my dad duct-taped their
hands and feet," Joshua said. "Duct tape was all we had." Mobile
County Sheriff's Department deputies picked up the two men, charging
them with manufacturing methamphetamine and second-degree criminal
