"Tears just rolled down my face as I walked in and saw everything gone and piles of trash all over my home," stated Tiffany McKinnon.
Adrian and Tiffany McKinnon returned home after a week away and found that almost everything the family of five owned had been stolen. Adrian sent his wife to see her sister while he inspected what was left behind in the piles of trash. As he was walking into the back sunroom, a man walked in through the backdoor straight into him.
Adrian held the suspect, Tajuan Bullock, 33, who was wearing Adrian's hat, at gunpoint. He told him to sit on the floor until he decided what to do with him. While waiting for the police to arrive, Adrian decided to take matters into his own hands for a bit......... he ordered Bullock to clean up the mess he had made throwing things out of drawers and cabinets.
"This man had the nerve to raise sand about us making him clean up the mess he had made in my house," stated Tiffany.
That's correct, Bullock complained to the police when they arrived that he had been forced to clean up his own mess at gunpoint. It's reported that the police laughed at his complaint and explained to him that anyone else probably would have shot him dead when they had caught him in the house.
Capt Huey Thornton, a police spokesman, stated that Bullock was arrested at 2 pm Tuesday, October 15 2007 on burglary and theft charges. He was being held in the Montgomery County Detention Facility on a $30,000 bond.
"Whenever I hear a noise, I just go grab my gun," stated EthelThat is exactly what the 81 year-old grandmother did in Mobile AL, Monday October 14 2005, when she heard noises in her laundryroom. When Ethel, who usually uses a walker, got there, she encountered a man in his underwear, washing his clothes in her washing machine.
She took a shot at the man when he came at her, which knocked her to the ground and the man grabbed her gun and pointed it at her. He then grabbed his soaking wet clothes and ran for it. Officers quickly found the man in a nearby community center, possibly because he was bleeding and still only in his underwear. He is expected to survive the bullet that went through his leg to his stomach and will be charged with first-degree burglary when he is released from the hospital.
Sanders stated that she had bought the gun four years ago as protection, since she lives alone but added that she had never shot it before.
I would think now, Bullock would take note of what the officers had told him when he whined to them, he got lucky just having to clean his own mess. Sanders on the other hand, missed a "kill shot" but I am betting people think twice about using her washer for free laundry service.
