Homeowner Holds Burglar At Gunpoint For Free Ride To Jail

GREENWOOD, IN — A man is now in jail after breaking into someone else’s home and picking the wrong house, according to WIBC. Not only did he pick the wrong house to attempt to rob — a gun owner’s — he also had a really, really weird excuse for why he was there.

According to local news:

Greenwood Police say Kyler Thompson, 46, had entered a home in the 800 block of N. Madison Ave. around 1:45 a.m. Wednesday. A woman in the home said she and her husband woke up to the sound of the breaking glass in another room. That’s when officers say the man grabbed a gun and found Thompson in a spare bedroom. Investigators say the homeowner held Thompson at gunpoint until police arrived to take him to jail.

According to officers, Thompson (said) he had been next door and was trying to stop a friend of his from entering the home. But investigators say Thompson’s friend was never found or identified.

Police say they found several items from inside the home belonging to the couple laying in the yard.

Thompson is in the Johnson County Jail without bond. Officers say he also has a felony arrest warrant in Marion County for possession of a firearm.

Seems legit.

Seriously, who on earth would think to use that excuse?

Even if he had gone over to prevent some other friend from doing wrong, what on earth is he doing in the house?

It’s amazing what people think other folks will believe.

It is doubtful that Thompson will get away with that excuse in court, and his felony arrest warrant is not likely to do him any favors. Hopefully, the man will not be able to endanger society for a long, long time.
