AZ: Gilbert Resident Ends Burglary Spree


A Gilbert Arizona resident brought an abrupt end to the burglary spree of a couple of thugs:

. . . Country Shadows Community, near Val Vista Drive and Riggs Road . . .

Police said the suspect, Richard Lopez, 24, of Coolidge knocked on the homeowner's front door around 10:17 a.m. After no one opened the door, Lopez started kicking it in, police said.

The homeowner, who declined comment when contacted by The Gilbert Republic, shot Lopez when he came through the door, police said. Lopez sustained gunshot wounds to the face and upper torso, but fled the scene with his brother, 18-year-old Mark Vega, police said.

Both were later arrested and are being investigated for other burglaries in the Southeast Valley.

Police said they did not know the motive for the break in, but said the homeowner faces no charges because it appeared he shot Vega in self-defense.

Thanks to his efforts there are now two less crooks walking our streets. Perhaps other thugs will hear about this incident & decide to choose a safer line of work. I hear McDonalds is hiring.

Here is another report of the same incident.

Independent work won't give you overnight achievement and moment satisfaction, yet with somewhat diligent work you can profit to fill those money related requirements! No one but you can help yourself. cash advance chicago

Inhabitants are the individuals who just lease their home either from a neighborhood power or a private person. Unsecured credits have a tendency to be more costly than secured advances, as there is truly no type of security, the advance loan specialist is not sure that he will be completely reimbursed. cash advance costa-mesa
