Friday, in Bremerton, a lady got home about noon, and encountered a burglar 'in the act'. Upon being confronted(and screamed at) by the homeowner, the bad guy bolted, carrying a jewlery box and another box full of coins.
The full story is here.
Good for her confronting this guy, and getting her stuff back, and not playing the victim. Hopefully, the eventually catch the guy, and she can identify him in a line-up.
But good golly lady...confronting a guy in the middle of robbing your house without arming yourself first? You can't count on being able to defend your castle with strong language.
She's pretty lucky this story HAS a happy ending for her.
