Good job by the homeowner.
I have a question. If the guy decided to make a run for it and the homeowner shot him, how would the court look at that?
I read down through the police blotter and of the 8 arrests, 7 of them had bond denied. That's good news!
That depends on state laws, but was the guy armed--with any weapon?

If the BG is fleeing and your not in any iminent danger or life threatening situation, how will the court look at that? I think the story changes a lot when the BG has a bullet entry from the back unless it's point blank. IMHO

JeanLouise, thankfully you live in WVa. Out here in Arkansas, the sheriff built a big jail to house all the BG's. But now, the tax payers don't want to go for a 1/4 cent tax to pay for their keep. So the sheriff had about 60 beds removed from the jail. Now we are down to about 40 beds, and when they catch someone breaking the law, regardless of what it is, bring him/her in, book em, and they bond out in less than an hour, and on their way to re-committ their crimes over and over and over It's a crying shame. Maybe when more get robbed, or burglarized, they will see the light, and support the sheriff. He's tried, but the citizens won't support him.
Sarge, it's hard to imagine the people would turn down a 1/4 cent tax increase for something like that! Talk about short sighted.
Very glad to hear something good from Huntington. Last week was rough down there with several robberies, an alleged rape, and a old friend of mine was held at gun point :(
Love seeing stories where the good guy "wins". Although, a repeat offender will likely engage in the se activities as soon as they are released
