    “This is an example of how an armed citizen is a deterrent to crime and that message needs to be sent to criminals,” said the Sheriff.
    That's the way it should always be said.

    That's good press. That area is lucky to have LE with that mindset. Many areas have the opposite.

    I don't know the layout of the crime scene, but if the homeowner had focused too closely on the BG under his garage door, one of the two accomplices could have jumped him. Always be aware that the bad guy may not be alone.

    Same story from a different source:

    Homeowner holds suspect at gunpoint for deputies

    "I love it when a homeowner catches a criminal while protecting his property," Gobble said. "That's the best example I can think of why an armed citizenry is the best defense against crime."
    Gobble said he did not know if the homeowner had a gun permit or if he carried the gun while he was away from the residence, but he had one while he was on his own property.

    "I don't care if he did or not," he said when asked if the homeowner was licensed to carry or if he carried the gun while he was away from the residence.

    It's a write-up on the BCSO website, too. I like this Sheriff. We need more like him.
