A local 31-year-old man may have thought breaking into a senior citizen’s home early Saturday would be easy pickings. But that was before he met the 88-year-old woman who owns the residence.
Sgt. Brice Woolly, Ardmore Police Department Patrol Division, said dispatchers received a call about 4:35 a.m.
“The call was from an alarm company. They said there was an intruder in the house and the owner had the subject and was holding him at gunpoint,” Woolly said.
Officers arrived at the residence and took the intruder into custody without incident. He was booked into the Carter County Detention Center pending formal charges.
