Police searching for aggravated burglary suspect

May 27, 2010


Police are searching for man about 25 years old who was discovered inside a home in the 4500 block of Grove Drive.

According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Susan Hadl, a Lawrence man's dog barked at 11:45 p.m. Wednesday to alert him to something wrong outside of his bedroom. The man encountered a white man in a dark hoodie and dark shorts crouching behind the resident's living room furniture. The resident proceeded to engage the intruder in conversation while his wife called 911 in the bedroom.

Hadl said the suspect left the house and traveled westbound, and there were likely more people involved in the foiled burglary. The intruder had reportedly gathered numerous items to steal, so Hadl said he either had an accomplice or a vehicle close by waiting.

Had it been my house, the police would still be looking for him and picking through dog poop the next day, little chunks here and there, nothing left but hip bones. Lol.

"to engage the intruder in conversation..." Heh, Had this been my home the intruder would have been egaged with some thing other than conversation. And the police would not be "looking"... they would be bagging and tagging.

I find it very unlikely that some scumbag would get the drop on me in my home. Even armed. You would be dead. Armed suspects that confront homeowners during a break - in don't talk much. They rape, kill and then steal.
I'm as peaceable as the next guy, I don't look for trouble. Had more than enough in my life. But break into my house with my wife and child at home - you are getting ONE chance to run. Then they take you out in a bag with a tag.

“Engage in conversation” ? Here talk with my .357 All professions have “job risk” Some are just higher than others.

Shoot first, talk later. close combat shotgun is nice for a wide spread of shot, no missing targets.

"My husband is talking with a nice young man in our living room..."

My call would be "do you know how to get blood stains out of my carpet?" My dogs probably would have gotten him first before I could get my gun out.

I just don't understand the mentality of someone breaking into another person's home to steal (especially when they are at home). Someone please help my understand, what kind of stupidity causes a person to be this bold and self-centered? Do they lack human intelligent or are their brains not evolved enough to think as a human? This sort of action has to be primal because it certainly isn't human. I personally don't think it is human to break in another person's home to steal their belongings that they've worked so hard to obtain. What right does this person have to do this and what sort of thought process allows him to think this way? I just don't get it.

20 The young man said to him, "All these I have observed; what do I still lack?" 21 Jesus said to him, "If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me."

Matthew 19:16-26

look it up. Jesus was a Socialist/Liberal.
