“I don’t know why they selected that house, but they picked the wrong one”
This week’s feel-good story comes to us from Georgia, and it’s a peach of a tale. A pistol-packing 78-year-old grandmother, roused from her afternoon nap, found two men in her hallway; upon seeing that she was armed, they fled the scene. They were later apprehended and charged, as was the female getaway driver.
According to a report, Elaine Stiehl, 78, was getting ready to take a nap when she heard a noise coming from inside her home on Mount Carmel Road around 3 p.m. Friday. Stiehl loaded her gun, opened her bedroom door and saw two men standing in her hallway, the report said.
Officials said the men were in the process of stealing furs and tools from the home, but after seeing Stiehl’s gun, the men reportedly ran out of the residence and fled in a car.
“Neighbors were able to give us a description of the vehicle we pulled it over and took the subjects into custody,” Yarbrough said.
John Michael O’Neal, 32, was been charged with burglary and theft by receiving stolen property.
Thomas Allen Linder, 44, is charged with burglary and weapons possession by a convicted felon.
The getaway driver, identified as Ann Renee Dearman, 49, was charged with burglary.
All three remain in custody at the Coweta County Jail.
Hilariously, Colonel James Yarbrough from the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office noted: ““I don’t know why they selected that house, but they picked the wrong one.”DONATE
