Four young Louisiana thugs who were looking for an easy score in a home invasion caper had the tables turned on them with lightning fast speed as things rapidly careened downhill when they chose the wrong house to burgle.
Judging by their appearance – all were wearing hoods (hoodies?) and had weapons in their backpacks, the quartet were dangerous characters who could have inflicted serious injury or death on their victims.
However, the owner of the place that they had staked out happened to be a woman who believed strongly in her Second Amendment rights and when they attempted to gain entry, she drew down on them with a handgun sending them scurrying off like cockroaches.
From that point, it was easy pickings for law enforcement professionals with the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Department who quickly apprehended them and put them into the pokey where they belonged.
Do directly to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200.

According to Shreveport ABC affiliate KTBS 3 “Four arrested for Keithville burglary”:
Four men who planned to commit a burglary on Thursday were surprised by a gun-toting homeowner, according to Sheriff Steve Prator.
Just before 10 a.m., deputies were called to the 11000 of Peggy Lane in Keithville regarding a burglary in progress. The homeowner said several men were at her front door dressed in hoods and carrying backpacks. When she met them at the door with a handgun the suspects fled in an SUV that was parked in the bushes.
At the same time, a passer-by reported to the Sheriff’s Office that they witnessed the hooded suspects on the porch of the residence and another hiding in the bushes.
Caddo Sheriff’s Lt. Jackie Lewis spotted the suspects’ vehicle and stopped it in the 3200 block of Colquitt Road. The vehicle contained several backpacks, masks, a large knife, and marijuana.
Sheriff’s Detectives Russell Hicks and Matthew Lucky investigated the burglary and booked the suspects into Caddo Correctional Center. Arrested were Jacorey Fuller, 20; Andre Ealy, 20; Tristen Bradley, 20; and Micah Eugene, 24. All were arrested for Simple Burglary, Possession of Burglary Tools, and Possession of Marijuana.
The story has about the second happiest ending that it could have had, fortunately for the four stooges, the owner didn’t punch their tickets to their great reward instead. Perhaps the jail time will give these young individuals time to reflect and to change their criminal ways because the next time they may not be so lucky.
