Burglar calls 911 on armed homeowner

| December 6, 2012

My Fox DFW tells the tale of Christopher Lance Moore who broke into the home of James Gerow who happened to be armed. Gerow held Moore at bay while awaiting the arrival of the police, but not before Moore made his own 911 call to tell police that “some guy” was pointing a gun at him.

With gun in hand, Gerow convinced the man to drop his keys. Then told his wife to call 911 and waited for deputies to arrive.

“Yeah, hurry up now. He says my husband’s fixing to shoot him,” she said on the call.

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said the suspect, later identified as 41-year-old Christopher Lance Moore, also called for help while sitting in his pickup truck.

“I’m not sure. I’m out in the country somewhere and some guy’s got a gun on me,” he said on the call.

When deputies arrived they arrested Moore for burglary of habitation, a second-degree felony.

I’m guessin’ Moore didn’t know that he was in Texas.

    If this were Detroit, Chicago, D.C., or San Fransisco, ect (Democratic Party bastions of crime) the home owner would have been arrested instead.

    That guy certainly raised his boy right.

    Not necessarily in Chicago. Not any more.

    Don’t lump all Chicagoans into one sum. The sum has many parts.

    Stupid should be painful and this buttmunch got off with less pain than he had coming.

    Criminals in Texas should just assume that every house they break in to has an armed occupant.

    Live a few miles from the incident. It seems the perp was actually mentally deficient in some way, and will probably end up in an institution rather than a jail. The homeowner did the right thing in this one. In an interview with a local TV station when they asked him if he thought about shooting, he looked kind of puzzled at the reporter and informed him that there was no need to kill a man that was cowering in his truck.
