Burglar calls 911 to save himself from gun-wielding homeowner


A suspected burglar called 911 after the owner of the home he broke into caught and held him at gunpoint.

The suspect, Christopher Moore, placed the emergency call in Springtown, Texas, during the botched burglary attempt early Tuesday after James Gerow, the homeowner, and Gerow’s son pointed guns at him as he sat in his pickup truck parked in the driveway.

“I’m out in the country somewhere,” Moore told the 911 operator during the 10-minute call. “Some guy’s got a gun on me.”

Gerow’s wife, Lindy, placed a concurrent call to 911 that confirmed Moore’s account.

“You better come quick,” she said, “or my husband’s going to shoot him.”

“If he gets out of the truck, shoot him in the legs,” James Gerow told his son, according to the Dallas Morning News Crime Blog. “You ain’t gotta kill him—just shoot him in the legs.”

When police arrived, both Moore and Lindy Gerow were still talking to 911 dispatchers.

According to CBS’ Dallas-Fort Worth affiliate, Moore was arrested and charged with burglary. He’s currently being held on a $35,000 bond.

    We were instructed that if you hear a burglar or have a problem, call 911 and drop the phone to record the incident, it will help your legal defense.

      After suffering numerous rape, torture and death threats for over seven years now, if anyone breaks into my home uninvited, I will have to assume they are here to rape, torture and murder me. I’m won’t ask questions before shooting them between their beady little eyes.

        Uninvited IS uninvited isn’t it? Don’t enter a home unless you’re invited in or own it.
