Blountville homeowner holds burglary suspect at gunpoint

Blountville, Tennessee

From the June 17, 2009 Kingsport, Tenn. Times-News:

A Blountville homeowner held an intruder at gunpoint when he spotted him going into his travel camper Tuesday morning.

The Reedy Creek Lane resident told Sullivan County Sheriff's deputies he first thought a relative had entered his camper, which was parked in his driveway.

When he discovered the man was a stranger, he went to get his gun.

He returned with his pistol to find the man inside his car, which was parked next to the camper, according to a sheriff's office spokesman.

The homeowner held the man at gunpoint until deputies arrived to arrest him.
