    Two Shot While Trying To Steal Air Conditioner In Denton County

    Trying to steal an air conditioner ended badly for two men near Texas Motor Speedway in Denton County early this morning. Just after 6 a.m. today the thieves were hit by shotgun blasts fired by a man who then called 911 to ask for an ambulance. The Denton County Sheriff’s Office says two Care-Flite helicopters flew the men to the hospital. Their conditions have not been available.

    I wish these people would learn how to steal a job, or is someone already doing that....

    I'm glad he got the steps right!

    1. Shoot
    2. Call 911

    I wonder if he 'feared for his life' or was he just ticked off.

    I think the Texas castle doctrine allow shooting to protect property.

    Lift flight, huh. They must have been leaking pretty bad.

    Copper thieving meth heads have trashed a lot of homes in this part of OK. The scumbags tear the plumbing and wiring out of homes under construction. The re-cycling companies have to know where the stuff comes from: Its about time to charge some recycling operators with receiving stolen property.

    I have no compassion for a scumbag who gets shot trashing a citizens home. Those two perps got what they deserved.
