Every homeowner is concerned about home invasions, and many have taken steps to make certain that their home is secure and protected. Of all, even the finest security system may fail, which is why one Arizona resident devised a smart backup strategy to secure his house in the event that it was compromised.
After being posted on social media, surveillance footage from a Phoenix homeowner went viral. At 3:40 a.m., a group of crooks entered the residence near 36th Avenue and Pinnacle Peak Road with the goal of sacking it and potentially doing worse.
The footage shows two masked robbers approaching the house and surveying the porch. The first assailant glances around and notices the surveillance device, which he covers for a few seconds with his palm. Two accomplices join them on the yard as the duo takes a posture to burst through the front door.
The first two men use their combined might to kick open the door. The goons storm the hole in an instant, assuming they’ve succeeded. They knew the closed door was truly for their safety at that point.
Trails from firearm shots whizz past the aperture before they can even enter. The crooks tuck tail and flee for their getaway car, embarrassed and fearful for their life. They get into a grey automobile and race away as some of them stumble across the yard.
Cops verified that the homeowner’s surveillance equipment originally alerted him to activity outside. When he looked at the notification, he noticed four individuals standing outside his house. Despite having only seconds before the criminals burst down the door, the resident was able to go to his pistol and ready for the intruders to enter his home.
It’s unknown how many times the homeowner fired his pistol or whether he shot any of the invaders before they fled. The security footage was posted by cops in the hopes that somebody with knowledge about the thieves’ names would come forward. There was no indication about the unsuccessful thieves’ physical condition.
The goons are unlikely to come back to the house now that the homeowner is armed and prepared to protect himself and his property. Crooks are much less likely to break into a home if the owner is armed. They’d prefer that people on the inside be as powerless as possible.
Even in a four-on-one match, the armed homeowner won. The goons expected to find the inhabitant sleeping and helpless, but they were surprised to find him well prepared and reluctant to be at the mercy of those who would hurt him.
With the appropriate instruction, virtually anybody can learn to use a weapon effectively for self-defense. While the majority of gun owners will never have to use their firearm, one occurrence like this might be the difference between life and death.
