THERE IS A sign on Abel Sisneros' home warning, 'Nothing inside is
worth risking your life for. Owners of this property are highly
skilled to protect life, liberty and property from criminal
attacks.' Authorities, however, say an intruder failed to heed the
warning. Sisneros heard a pounding at the front door and grabbed his
9 mm handgun as a precaution. He was at the top of the stairs when
the suspect broke through the locked front door. Sisneros fired two
shots. The wounded burglar groaned and ran to the back of the house
where police arrested him. "He couldn't get out of the back [of the
home], and he knew I was still in the front of the house, so he was
trapped; Sisneros explained.
