East Texas woman stops attempted burglary using a 12-gauge shotgun

A New Chapel Hill grandmother used her pickup truck and 12-gauge shotgun to stop two suspected burglars Sunday. Mary Farmer was standing on her back porch Sunday afternoon when she noticed an unfamiliar truck pull up to her elderly parents’ property. After a few moments of watching, she noticed two men begin to load up their truck with her father’s possessions. “After I noticed they started to load up stuff into their truck, that’s when I drove over there and confronted them. That’s when they tried to leave,” Mrs. Farmer said. As the men attempted to leave the property, Mrs. Farmer pulled a 12-gauge shotgun from her vehicle and held the two men at gunpoint as she called 911. “I’m sure the dispatcher on the other end of the phone enjoyed my lecturing to these two men taking my daddy’s stuff,” Mrs. Farmer said. “I had plenty of time to lecture them, and tell them how ashamed they should be. They weren't young men - they were older, so they knew better.” Sgt. Coslin, with the Smith County Sheriff’s office, said Mrs. Farmer blocked the men in with her vehicle before pulling the shotgun on them. No charges were pressed against the two suspected robbers during the Sunday afternoon incident. The men attempted to steal an electrical box, a gas can and a cooler. “If it had been up to me, I would’ve pressed charges, but it is my daddy’s property, and he is a Christian man and decided not to press charges,” Mrs. Farmer said. “I’m very protective of my parents - it would be a shame to get killed over a cooler and a gas can.”
