    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.

    I would generally qualify all BG as stupid, though some more than others.
    Well done home owner!

    The good guys win again! Seems to be a fairly straightforward story with good reporting.

    Good post!

    So my question is, what if the BG refuses to be 'held up' and runs out the door? I know some states say you can't shoot if they are retreating. Just wanted some food for thought.

    Most places will tell you that if you dont feel your life is in imminent danger, dont shoot. Tough to articulate why you felt you had to shoot a dude that was running away. There was a home invasion post a few weeks ago, and someone posted a great answer...claymores!!!

    Then you use your head! If he moves towards you, shoot. if he moves away from you (read as leaving) then don't shoot. Pretty simple there!
    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe

    Let him go. I would not even shoot under these circumstances if state law allowed it.

    Stay within the fear of death or serious physical injury paradigm.

    Kidnapping??? That was a citizen's arrest.

    The one thing that always nags at me in these types of situations is that there is now a BG who knows who I am and where I live and is likely holding a grudge. I think I'd always feel like I have to watch my 6.
