Couple scares off home invaders

Guns save lives and protect property. This is one of the reasons why we have a Second Amendment. Larry Stanford for the Thomaston Times reports:

Two suspects in a home invasion on Trice Cemetery Road on April 13 got a rude welcome when they returned to the home on May 13 to attempt another robbery. In the first incident, the retired, married couple in the house were bound and robbed at gunpoint, with the robbers stealing several guns and fleeing in the couple’s car, which was later recovered.

But a second attempt was a bad idea. The would-be robbers were met with gunfire from both the man and woman. An Upson County Sheriff’s Deputy was also stationed nearby and with assistance was able to capture the two men.

According to a May 14 news release by Upson County Sheriff Dan Kilgore, suspicious activity had been reported in the area on May 12, and Deputy Mario Cromer was parked across from the victims’ residence about 8:30 a.m. on May 13. When the victims opened their garage door, the two suspects ran from a wooded area near the edge of the driveway, charging toward the female victim with handguns. But the female victim was also armed with a handgun and fired twice at the suspects, who fled back toward a wooded area behind the residence. The male victim went onto the back porch with another handgun and fire toward the suspects as they ran into the woods. Neither suspect was hit by the gunfire.
