Burglar Calls 911 On Himself After Homeowner Holds Him At Gunpoint

Guest Post by Mara Zebest

Christopher Lance Moore has a record of theft and drugs.

Watch the video here of the homeowner explaining how he protected his family during the home invasion.

Dallas News reports the following:

In a strange flip of events, a burglary suspect called 911 early Tuesday to report that he was being held at gunpoint by a Springtown homeowner and his son.

The homeowner called 911, too, but by then he was in control, holding him at gunpoint and demanding to know what he was doing in his home.

“Just unlucky, I guess,” the man responded, according to a release from the Parker County Sheriff’s Department.

The incident happened around 12:30 a.m. when the homeowner and his wife woke up to find an intruder in the bedroom of their home in the 100 block of Lelon Lane.

The suspect, identified as 41-year-old Christopher Lance Moore of Bedford, left the home and sat in his GMC pickup, parked in the family’s driveway. The homeowner followed him with a pistol, took the suspect’s keys and blocked his getaway with his own vehicle, while his stepson trained a shotgun on Moore, Fox 4 News reports.

“If he gets out of the truck, shoot him in the legs,” James Gerow told his son. “You ain’t gotta kill him; just shoot him in the legs. … If he’d got out, I’d have expected him to shoot him.”

When deputies arrived, both men were on the phone with 911. Deputies asked Moore why he had broken into the home, to which he merely said he had “bad intentions.”

Moore was arrested and charged with burglary of a habitation, and his bail was set at $35,000. His criminal record includes theft and drug charges.

In light of the Left agenda being pushed by Bob Costas’ incorrect and rather insane remarks, it’s always great to hear a story in which a gun saved lives.

    It is pretty much do or die time.

    Thank goodness for guns, because this is the only thing I think Obama figures will make the American people stand up and go nuts…….but before you know it, he’ll be coming for them too – one gun owner at a time until the American people get used to the idea and turn them in. I hope it never comes to this.

    …I only go by my Constitutional Civil Rights…”…shall not be infringed” …they’ll get a fight from me…now when just 10% of all the American gun owners fight -that’s ~9-10 million citizens, alone or organised- …this present ‘not-see’ Democrat thug-boss, politico-machine scourge…shall dissolve and collapse from within…as its’ foundations are built upon its’ own lust and Unconstitutional, craven harshness… We shall rise and overcome…Liberty! Liberty, equal for all…

    incorrect, Obama is not comming after guns. He is doing an end run.

    He is going after Ammo. No ammo and all you hace is an expensive club.

    Nice thing is that many of us have stockpiled for over a decade or more.

    I have enough ammo for a small war. Obama is short sighted and over reaching.

    THIS is what will get his scrawny butt in trouble, underestimating America.

    The left has a hard time realizing that it is better to have a weapon and not need it then to need a weapon and not have one. Here we have have a case of a man having a weapon and needing it, all to the detriment of the criminal. I imagine that if this happen in one of those bright blue states the guy with the gun would be arrest for reckless endangerment of the criminal, and allow the criminal to sue. Thank God we still have armed citizens in this country.
