Ripon, Wisconsin Burglar Caught At Gunpoint

Ripon, Wisconsin

From June 1, 2009 Chicago channel 7:

This Town of Ripon homeowner was craftier than the armed burglar trying to rob his house.

Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Department officials say the homeowner held a 23-year-old man attempting to steal cash, firearms and other items by gunpoint until police arrived around 1:20 a.m. Friday.

Lt. Bill Flood says the homeowner saw lights on in his house, crept into his driveway, retrieved a handgun and waited for the burglar to come out.

Ripon police and sheriff's deputies arrested the victim's 24-year-old girlfriend in a nearby vehicle. Officials say she dropped him off.
