Armed Homeowner Catches Burglar Who Was Arrested And Released By Police Three Hours Earlier


SANGER, CALIFORNIA — Sometimes people just really like pushing their like. In Sanger California, Arthur Perez was arrested for an outstanding misdemeanor. He was quickly released by police. Three hours later he was caught and arrested again while burglarizing a home.

Police first stopped Arthur Perez on Friday around 11:00 a.m. He was arrested for an outstanding misdemeanor warrant. Perez was cited and released from Sanger Police.

Then, around 1:37 p.m., officers were called to a home on the 1500 block of Jensen for a report of a residential burglary.

Officers say the caller was a registered Concealed Carry Permit holder, and had the suspect held at gunpoint. When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered the accused burglar was Arthur Perez.

Perez was taken into custody– again– and later booked into Fresno County Jail on a parole violation.

The Breakdown:

There are almost no details of the actual confrontation between the armed homeowner and Perez. We don’t know how he was caught or what altercation may have occurred. All we know is, that during the act of the burglary, he was caught by an armed homeowner. That homeowner kept Perez at gunpoint until police arrived.

What we can talk about here is the sheer indifference to consequences bad guys like Perez have. Perez is a perfect example of why it is important to own a firearm and be prepared to defend yourself.

Guys like Perez are not concerned or scared of the police. They are not worried about going to jail. Even if Perez is not a violent man, his indifference towards consequences makes him extremely dangerous to society.

New laws are not going to deter him. Outstanding warrants will not deter him. I think, however, armed citizens willing to protect themselves could be the deterrent guys like Perez needs. Having to deal with armed citizens, capable of shooting in self defense, is a strong deterrent for any bad guy.
