    Homeowner Holds Burglar at Gunpoint

    http://www.kolotv.com/home/headlines/98770369.html

    A 70-year-old Reno man used a handgun to stop a would-be burglar at his home. Reno Police say Ron Stewart answered the door at his home on Locust St when police say 22-year-old Samuel Flores forced his way into the house.

    After a short struggle, Stewart grabbed his handgun (which he had in the house) and kept Flores at bay while the police were called.

    Reno police took Flores into custody where he will be charged with burglary and battery of an elderly person.

    Stewart was not injured in the altercation.

    Congrats to Mr. Stewart, and I hope that the dirtbag get a lengthy sentence.

    Good for Ron Stewart!!
    Don't mess with old men! Don't assume they cant or won't.

    Why do people keep answering the door and opening up their home???

    You know I thought the same thing. You might of read the thread about the 85 YO woman that did the same thing. All I can think of is that the elderly grew up in a time when the vast majority were honest and trustworthy so they mistakenly trust everyone.

    Some people are more trusting than others, regardless of experience. Fortunately, some also take precautions, should their trust be misplaced. Not the best solution, but better than none.

    I remember an older fire chief in this volunteer fire department I used to run with had a great saying: Old age and treachery will overcome youth and vigor any day.

    It amazes me how people just open their doors to anyone who knocks.
