Man tries to rob home, homeowner holds suspect at gunpoint until cops arrive
By Tommy Noel
BANNOCK COUNTY - A suspected burglar has the tables turned as the homeowner ends up holding the suspect at gunpoint until the cops arrived.
It all started Thursday morning when an off-duty Bear Lake County Sheriff's Deputy spotted a stolen car near the Sinclair Station in Lava Hot Springs.
The Bear Lake Deputy called the Bannock County Sheriff's Office for them to respond. In the mean time, the suspect got away and traveled west on Highway 30 to the area of Topaz Road, which is about 5 miles west of Lava Hot Springs.
According to Captain Mike Sanders of the Bannock County Sheriff's Office, the suspect attempted to burglarize a home, but the homeowner ended up holding the burglary suspect at gunpoint until sheriff's deputies arrived.
The burglary suspect is now in custody and faces several felony charges. The Bannock County Sheriff's Office credits the home owner for their actions until they could show up and arrest the suspect.
This is a developing story that we'll be following on Eyewitness News.
Stupid BG! This is just a little ways away from me.
