Armed citizen scares off burglars

Originally ran here as:
"Two men being sought in Bagley Road burglary"
Thursday, May 31, 2001, The News Sun


MIDDLEBURG HEIGHTS - Police are looking for two men who tried to burglarize a Bagley Road home while the occupants were watching television inside.

The attempted break-in took place at about 8 p.m. May 22, a report said.

According to the report, a woman and her husband were watching television when someone knocked at the front door. When they looked outside, they saw a black pickup truck in the driveway; moments later, the truck pulled out of the driveway and into the parking lot of an adjacent business.

The report said the driver parked his vehicle, entered the husband's truck and began looking over one of its tires. It was then, police said, that the woman saw a second suspect sliding open a screen door on the patio.

According to the report, the husband told her to call 911, grabbed a shotgun and pointed it at the intruder, who was trying to open a patio door. The second suspect then fled the scene.

The victims later found a window on their attached garage had been shattered.

A man who was near the crime scene was questioned by police but released after authorities determined he was not involved in the incident.

The first suspect, who was wearing dark clothing, was described as white with a medium build. The second man was dark-skinned, in his early 30s and had short brown hair. He was wearing a dark gray sweatshirt.
