FLA: Armed Homeowner stops car theft!

March 1st, 2012

Oops, Wrong Car: Two burglars attempting to steal a car from a

Brevard County [FL] home were held at gunpoint by the homeowners.

Matthew Clark, 20, and Justin Sheppard, 19, are facing several

charges including burglary and grand theft. Authorities say the

pair was burglarizing a home near Titusville on Karen Drive when

the homeowners confronted them with a 12-gauge shotgun. The woman

and her son held the two until police arrived. Clark and Sheppard

are now being held on $5,000 bonds. (Alls well that ends

well but, had the car thieves been armed and prepared to fight,

the outcome might not have been worth whatever portion of the

vehicles value was not covered by insurance. With no

immediate threat to life or limb, sometimes its best to

call 911.)
