After hearing a noise by her carport, a homeowner in Titusville, Fla. went to investigate. Upon seeing someone inside her son’s truck, the homeowner retrieved her 12-gauge shotgun and alerted her son, who retrieved his .38 revolver. The homeowner then confronted what turned out to be two criminals and held them at gunpoint until police arrived.
The suspects were initially charged with burglary and grand theft, but after interrogation a possible pattern of robberies was discovered and they were charged with residential burglary.
