W. Valley man foils burglars - in his underwear, with a shotgun - Salt Lake Tribune
Not sure chasing them down the street is such a good idea, but it sounds like everything ended ok. Hope the male accomplice is caught shortly.WEST VALLEY CITY - Next time, maybe some pants?
Still, West Valley City homeowner Tony Gamonal managed to foil burglars when he took out after them with a shotgun -- and wearing only his boxer shorts.
2News reports today that he surprised the burglars, then armed himself to give chase. A nearby police officer joined him, eventually capturing one of the pair, a woman. The second suspect, a man, remained at large.
Gamonal says it wasn't until the capture that he realized he was outside, in the street, in his underwear.
"I looked down and said, 'Oh man . . . here I am,'" he told 2News.
Gamonal says this is the second time robbers have targeted his home in two weeks.
The last time, the hinges were cut off his gate and up to $10,000 worth of property was stolen. The fence around his home has also been vandalized with spray-paint.
He says he's had it. And he plans to protect his home -- regardless of what he is, or is not, wearing
"If you can't be safe in your own home, where can you be?" Gamonal says. "There was no doubt; I was so mad that I would have shot them."
