Pack of Thugs Kicks Front Door Down to Find 2A Patriot Inside, Locked & Loaded
Homeowner spots criminals approach property in dead of night and arms himself
When an armed pack of thugs decided to pick on this house in the dead of night, little did they know they had been spotted on surveillance camera and had severely underestimated the homeowner.
A criminal gang targeted the home in Pheonix, Arizona around 3:40 a.m. last Thursday and probably assumed the four of them could easily outnumber the occupants and pull off a straightforward heist under the cover of darkness.
What the punks failed to realize was the property had a motion sensor on the front porch and they were about to get far more than they bargained for.
As the mob approached the home, near 36th Avenue and Pinnacle Peak Road, the security cameras picked them up and captured their failed robbery.
Seemingly well prepared, the crooks had their masks on and nobody else was around.
One pair stood in front of the door while the other two were a few feet behind as they prepared to burst in.
Suddenly two of the thugs kicked in the front door, and the first two tried to breach the entrance, according to surveillance video of the incident.
But the home invaders had met their match.
The attempted robbery ends right here.
Unbeknown to the wannabe burglars, the property's motion sensor is linked to the security camera and triggered an alert for the homeowner, who was able to see what was happening on the front porch, according to the AZFamily.
And being a law-abiding citizen of the United States of America, this homeowner had prepared in another way: By exercising his God-given rights found in the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
So after being alerted to the intrusion by the surveillance system, the homeowner was able to take his firearm and greet his uninvited guests with an unexpected welcome.
Police said the homeowner fired more than one shot at the suspects after the front door was forced open.
They barely made it over the threshold, however, before they were running for their lives.
Detectives believe some of the suspects were armed, but they got the message loud and clear.
They ran toward a getaway vehicle - a gray four-door sedan - that was waiting in the street for them, police said.
Video shows one of the suspects comically tripped and fell after getting tangled in the legs of his comrade as they ran away in a panic while trying to dodge bullets.
The suspects got into the vehicle and drove away from the area, AZFamily said.
The outlet said police didn't release descriptions of the suspects but hope the video of the break-in will create some leads.
Spanish speakers may call 480-TESTIGO (837-8446) the outlet said, adding that callers can remain anonymous and could earn a reward of up to $1,000.
