    A break-in of convenience, but a poor choice. Looks like someone saved the state a lot of criminal justice costs. Good on the homeowner.

    I read these stories and am reminded that truth is sometimes stranger than fiction.

    Life gets tough in the BG fast lane sometimes!!!
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Isn't Utah one of the few states that uses "FIRING SQUAD" on death row? This one didn't even make it that far, but he did get his LAST SUPPER!

    I think they got rid of it several years ago but inmates already on death row could still chose it. Those sentenced since (I think 2005?) don't have the option. poor guys.

    Sounds like a "Junkie" looking for an easy score,and found an unlocked door.That is why it's a good reason to have 1 person secure doors and windows at night before going to bed,good thing the BG was dumb enough to let the GG enter an unsearched closet,and the GG had a loaded gun in it

    Makes you wonder why the door was open in the middle of the night. On the other side the neighborhood just got safer

    Basic Castle Doctrine that many states including SC have. You break into my house, I have a legal presumption of imminent danger of death or great bodily injury and can "make sure" you do not do it again.

    The article I read said the door was locked with a "child lock" whatever that is.
    It was a sliding glass door, so I'm wondering why they only had a minimal means of securing it.

    Two words for the BG,,,,,Too Bad!!!!!!!!!

    Great job to the home owner. Sliding doors are pretty easy to defeat. I keep a small board in mine but that won't stop someone who is motivated.

    How could this have been prevented:
    1) DOUBLE locks on all doors and windows
    2) ALARMS on doors and windows
    3) DOGS that bark
