Repeat offender commits his last crime


A convict recently released from prison was prowling around a neighborhood and spotted a house that appeared to have no one inside.


Thinking the house would make an easy target, he broke into the residence through a window.


However, the homeowner and his family returned before the criminal had finished his crime.


Upon entering the house, the homeowner immediately noticed things were out of place – but before he could act, the suspect attacked the homeowner with a baseball bat.


Not to be made a victim, the homeowner was armed, and used his firearm to fatally shoot the criminal.


Detectives believe the homeowner acted in self-defense and will press no charges. The criminal had an extensive history and had served jail time for armed robbery and carjacking.


Local news reports:

SARASOTA COUNTY -- A man fatally shot a home intruder when he was attacked by the burglar inside his own home after returning from out of town.

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office says they were called the 2300 block of Constitution Blvd around 1:30 p.m. on reports of a shooting. After investigating, police say a man, identified as Glenn Edward Oliver, 30, forced his way in through a window while the family was out of town. When the homeowner and family returned, he noticed things were out of place and was then attacked by the suspect who then ran into a bedroom and grabbed a baseball bat. The homeowner used a firearm to shoot and kill the suspect.

Kind businessman forced to defend family


In bright daylight a stranger walked up to a family-run BBQ stand and asked the owner for money.


The owner’s brother told the man to return the next day, offering him a job instead to earn some money.


But the stranger bristled and then began aggressively demanding money – “Give me all of it.”


Then the owner heard his son cry out, “Daddy, he got something chrome in his pocket!”


Fearing for his family’s life, the owner pulled out his .380 and fired one shot – fatally striking the suspect, who succumbed to his injuries at a local hospital.


Investigators discovered an eight-inch metal spike in the man’s pocket. They are considering this an attempted robbery and have stated the owner acted in self-defense.


Local news reports:

ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. - Update: | Dec. 16.--The owner of Jordan's BBQ says he is heartbroken for the man who lost his life yesterday but that he had no choice but to protect his family.

Serial burglar shot by homeowner


When a home alarm went off around 6:30 am, the homeowner thought at first that it was just a mechanical error.


Then the alarm began ringing again, so the homeowner got out of bed to investigate – and found a suspect trying to break in through a window with a pair of bolt cutters.


In the confrontation with the suspect, the homeowner shot him in the abdomen. Authorities transported the criminal to a medical center for treatment.


Neighbors identified the suspect as a man who had broken into their homes multiple times. Police also found that he had previous criminal arrests.


Perhaps this time, the burglar will learn his lesson. American gun owners can and do protect their homes and their loved ones inside.


No charges will be filed against the homeowner.


Local news reports:

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A Miami homeowner confronted a man trying to break into his home Tuesday morning.

Homeowner shoots thief's getaway vehicle

 
Early one morning, a homeowner was rudely awakened by the sound of banging on his front door.


Suspicious, the homeowner got up and looked out the window, only to see a young male running back to a gray van parked in the driveway.


Then he saw the suspect open the van’s back door and remove an object before racing around the north side of the house.

 
Hearing several loud bangs from that side of the house, the homeowner grabbed his handgun, walked outside, and confronted the suspect.


The suspect threw a tire iron at the homeowner, but it missed, and then the suspect jumped into his van to flee the scene.


As the suspect began driving away, the victim fired at the van, striking one of the tires and deflating it. Police were able to nab the suspect in his vehicle close by.


Meanwhile, the victim discovered that the left-rear window of his truck had been smashed, but at least no property had been stolen. Authorities are charging the suspect with aggravated assault and burglary.

The danger started with a high-speed chase after a suspect flying down the highway around 120 mph. The chase lasted for at least three exits before the suspect pulled over.


But he wasn’t done yet – when the deputy approached, the suspect erupted into physical violence.


Overpowering the deputy, the suspect was viciously beating his victim when a driver with a concealed carry license arrived on the scene.

 
Exiting his vehicle, the concealed carrier instructed the suspect to stop beating the deputy, but when the suspect refused, the armed civilian shot the suspect three times.


The suspect succumbed to his wounds. The victimized deputy is expected to recover from his injuries.

Hurricane blows in midnight invader

 
When Hurricane Matthew hit Florida, this homeowner’s power went out. His wife and grandchildren were gone, and he was spending the night alone when he woke up to the menacing noise of breaking glass.


He instantly realized that the storm wasn’t breaking the glass, as the crunch-crunch of heavy footsteps on glass shards reached his ears.


Getting his revolver, this grandfather waited at the top of the stairs for the trespasser to appear.

 
When he came into view, the nightlight he was carrying revealed that this invader was big and burly.


“He came across my dining room and to the foot of my stairway. I had a revolver and fired at him twice,” the homeowner later told the media.


The two shots were enough to send the invader running.
