Man shoots car burglar, police say

Police say an Augusta man will not be charged after he shot and wounded a juvenile breaking into his vehicle on Alene Circle Saturday afternoon.

According to a news release from the Richmond County Sheriff's Office, the man interrupted the car break-in and fired his .40-caliber handgun at the youth several times.

One bullet struck the suspect, breaking his clavicle, police said. He was taken to Medical College of Georgia hospital for treatment. A second suspect fled the area, the news release stated.

Chalmette man opens fire, thwarts vehicle burglary

Two young men trying to burglarize a truck in Chalmette got the worst of it when one got his arm rolled over by the getaway driver and the other was shot at by the owner of the vehicle, St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy James Pohlmann said.

Both men escaped in a gray Dodge following the 7 p.m. incident Wednesday night in the 2300 block Corinne Drive. The truck's owner, who came outside of his home with a handgun when he saw someone climbing into his vehicle, told deputies he thought he hit the driver of the getaway car when he fired twice after the driver allegedly pointed a gun at him, authorities said.


The burglar who was trying to break into the truck ran toward the getaway vehicle when he saw the gun-wielding owner. As he tried to climb into the moving can, the suspect fell to the ground and his right arm was rolled over by the car's right rear tire, authorities said.


No charged were filed against the vehicle owner because he appeared to have acted in self defense, Pohlmann said.

Just to remind the antis that good guys also use guns to stop crime.
