Guns Are The Best Deterrent

Crime doesn’t pay, especially on the end of a shotgun as one dumb crim has found out.

This is the moment a furious homeowner armed with a shotgun caught a serial burglar carrying away his neighbor’s 47-inch flat-screen TV.

The alleged burglar, Gilbert Nunez, 27, had broken into Paul Cavazos’ condo building in San Antonio, Texas, at least twice before – including once when he stole a laptop from Mr Cavazos’ home while his girlfriend was home.

In December, when Nunez allegedly carried off another TV that belonged to Mr Behrens, Mr Cavazos’ girlfriend called police to report that he was still in the neighborhood.

Mr Behrens said it took 30 minutes for officers to arrive and by that time, Nunez was gone.

When Mr Cavazos and his girlfriend came home from an office party on Saturday and saw the thief trying to sneak off with a neighbor’s television in broad daylight, he was ready.

‘I grabbed my shotgun. You know, I’ve been thinking about this for a long time,’ he told KSAT-TV.
