Business owner holds burglars at gunpoint, KOKI, Tulsa Okla. 05/22/12

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

65-year-old Jerry Springer’s storage business in Tulsa, Okla. has been the target of at least a dozen burglaries since January 2012, when he underwent triple bypass surgery. So when Springer was alerted by a friend to yet another break-in at the facility, he grabbed a gun and went to investigate.

When Springer arrived he spotted a pair of thieves pilfering cables and auto parts from one of the storage trailers. Springer confronted the criminals and held them at gunpoint until police could arrive.

In an interview with local media, Springer made clear how upset he was with the thieves, stating, “I’ve earned what I got and I’m tired of people stealing it.” Springer went on to warn any would-be burglars, saying, “When they get in that yard I think it's second degree, that’s 2 to 4 years; if you get caught by me that may be an eternity.” (KOKI, Tulsa Okla. 05/22/12)
