Wichita man uses pitchfork to chase burglars away

November 19, 2012


— Wichita police say a man caught two burglars at his elderly neighbor's home and chased them away with a pitchfork.

KAKE-TV reports the man saw two teenagers inside his neighbor's residence just after 9:30 a.m. Saturday and called 911 before confronting them with a pitchfork.

Officers arrived at the scene and found that the victim's home had been ransacked. Two suspects, ages 16 and 19, were found hiding nearby and booked into jail on burglary charges.

The victim is an 86-year-old woman who was not at home at the time.

+2 awesome points to this gentleman. +1 for refusing to be a victim. +1 for looking out for his neighborhood.

-1 to the judicial system that will inevitably let both of these criminals go with barely a slap on the wrist.
