Lisa Hansen awoke one morning to the sounds of someone moving around
inside her house. Then someone ran up her stairs and attempted to
open her bedroom door. "I waited to listen to see how many footsteps
I heard," Hansen said. Deciding there was only one intruder, Hansen
grabbed her cell phone and reached for a gun she keeps under her
bed. She ran out of the room, confronted the burglar and held him at
gunpoint until police arrived. The would-be burglar turned out to be
a teenager who lives in the neighborhood and had previously done
some lawn work for Hansen. The teen said he had entered her home
only because he saw a man in there, but Hansen did not believe the
explanation. Police later discovered a checkbook belonging to
Hansen's cousin in the boy's pocket.
