Thanks to his trusty .22 rifle, it took less than 10 minutes for a
Waldo County, Maine, man to rid his home of intruders. The man and
his wife, both in their 70s, were awakened at 6:30 a.m. when their
front door was smashed open. The intruders -- at least two of them
-- blindfolded the woman and left her in the living room. They bound
her husband's feet to the footboard of his bed and threw a
pillowcase over his face. The home-invaders repeatedly asked the
couple "where the stuff was," said Maine State Police Detective
David Tripp. Exactly what 'stuff' they were looking for was unclear,
but police speculate they may have been looking for drugs. While the
intruders were elsewhere in the house, the man freed himself and
retrieved a .22-cal. rifle kept by the side of his bed. When one
intruder returned to the room, the man fired a shot at him, hitting
the bedroom wall. "They fled the residence," said Tripp. It was the
fourth home invasion reported in Waldo County in the past year.
