A Fayette County, W.V. homeowner was in his house at around midday when he heard a suspicious noise. When he went to investigate, the homeowner found an intruder in his kitchen. The home invader pleaded with the homeowner to let her leave and attempted to flee, but the homeowner and two other residents were able to detain the criminal at gunpoint until police could arrive.
Following the incident, Fayette County Sheriff Steve Kessler explained that “More and more homeowners are arming themselves to protect their homes against this type of criminal behavior.” (The Charleston Daily Mail, Charleston, W.V. 08/12/13)
