This idiot goblin should have limited the burglaries to D.C. Folks in Virginia, as the Washington Post like to point out, have guns.
Fairfax, Va. (AP) - There's a young burglary suspect who no doubt wishes he'd picked another house. That's because Fairfax County (website - news) police say the one they found him in is owned by a guy with a gun.
Investigators say shortly before 2 a.m., the homeowner heard some noises in his house in the 3900 block of Collis Oak Court, in the Fair Oaks neighborhood. The man grabbed his gun and went to take a look.
According to police, he found a 17-year-old wearing a ski mask and gloves. Turning the tables on the teen, the homeowner ordered him to call police, which he did. Officers arrived and took him into custody. The suspect was later released to his parents, and charges are pending.
No shots were fired and no one was hurt.
Of course, he wasn't shot, but I like the fact that the homeowner made him call the cops. I don't really need to point this out here, but I will anyway. If this crime occurred in D.C., the homeowner would have been faced with the longer prison term.
