POLICE SAY a would-be burglar is probably feeling pretty inept at
his illicit trade. First, he was caught entering a bathroom window
by the home's 70-year-old female occupant, so he fled the scene.
Minutes later he attempted to burglarize a second home, this time
entering the home of Richard and Phyllis Osborne. Mrs. Osborne heard
a ruckus, but a quick investigation showed nothing amiss—that is,
not until Mr. Osborne noticed the bedspread was out of place. A
closer look revealed the suspect's knuckles poking out from beneath
the bedspread. Mr. Osborne aimed his shotgun at the suspect, ordered
him to come out and held him for police. "I wasn't scared, I was
mad.” Mr. Osborne said. "I was mad because he scared my wife."
