They Suffered a Failure of the Victim-selection Process

Maybe they didn't think a farm would have a security system. Homeowner Holds Burglars at Gunpoint After Firing Shot in Air

Around 3 AM Tuesday morning, the Grant County Sheriff's Office got a 9-1-1 call from a homeowner near Mattawa. The landowner said he'd received an alert on his phone from his security system about an intrusion into one of his shops on his farm.

The man, armed with a handgun, was concerned the two would-be burglars might be armed so as he confronted them coming out of the shop, he fired a round into the air.

Sheriff's deputies showed up and arrested the two miscreants on charges of 2nd Degree Burglary and 2nd Degree Malicious Mischief.

They were driving in a stolen vehicle, so that would be a felony charge of possessing stolen property.

They should have stayed home, and watched TV.
