A 25-year-old girl was visiting her dad when she was awakened from sleep at 5am by the sound of the handle to her bedroom door being jiggled.
She looked out the window to see a man trying to get into the house, but when the would-be-intruder found the door locked he proceeded to go to the next house.
The woman then watched as the man broke into a car next door and she decided to wake up her father, who was a CCW holder.
While she dialed 911, her father, Adam Canales, grabbed his .45 handgun to try to stop the man and detain him for police.
The 18-year-old robber, Randall Hicks, was just finishing up his clean out of the next door neighbor’s car when Canales put a gun in his face.
Realizing that he was caught red-handed, Hicks tried to convince Canales to let him go. Hicks tried offering Canales money or a share of what he had taken from the car on his neighbor’s driveway and from others he had broken into that night.
But this armed CCW holder was not about to let a crook walk and he said,
“You’re either leaving in a squad car or in a box.”
It was then that the thief realized the gig was up and he laid down on the ground to wait for police to arrive. When Hicks was asked about the line he gave the crook he said,
“People like options, so I gave him his options.”
The police later said that the suspect lived in the neighborhood and probably knew most of the people he was robbing. He had run-ins with the law before, but this was the first time he was arrested as an adult. Welcome to adulthood, Hicks.
The Blaze reported,
“Police searched Hicks and discovered a variety of items (digital cameras, knives, phone chargers, etc.) that he had allegedly taken from cars up and down the street. At dawn, the police knocked on doors and started connecting homeowners with the items that had been taken from their cars as they slept. At the end of the day, the young man had been charged with 11 different crimes, 8 felonies and 3 misdemeanors. And, because he was wearing a mask, the burglary and attempted burglary charges are upgraded to a more serious level.”
Thanks to a gun owner another bad guy is off the streets and at least one neighborhood is safer today.
