    GOOD: Man In Underwear Foils Burglars - West Valley City, UT

    W. Valley man foils burglars - in his underwear, with a shotgun - Salt Lake Tribune


    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."
    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.

    It's not, but we were not in his situation. If one of us lost large amounts of valuables, it's hard to say how you will react until it happens.

    Oh yeah. I'd be mad. I'd have to release the rotties.
