Criminal Makes BIG Mistake Trying to Rob the Home of This Marine!

Marine veteran Dan Reynolds of Katy, Texas had an understated response to explain how he stopped a would-be home invader from breaking into his home: “Some people protect their homes,” he said dryly.

“If you come by and want to rob people, that’s what you get. He probably won’t come back, but if he does, we’ll handle that then,” Reynolds went on to say.

“I knew somebody was up to no good,” Dan Reynolds said. Reynolds was home alone when he heard a rock being thrown through his back bedroom window.

He grabbed his 12-gauge shotgun, went to investigate and says he did not hesitate to pull the trigger when he saw a man in a hoodie climbing in through the shattered window.

“He’s not robbing me. He didn’t say anything. I didn’t say anything. I shot him and he fell back out the window and ran away,” Reynolds said.

Reynolds says the blast hit the intruder square in the chest. The 31-year-old says he was already on alert since his home was broken into about three weeks ago. He wasn’t home at the time so the thieves made out like bandits.

“Laptops, tablets, stereo, phones, iPods, a TV,” Reynolds said, adding that he wasn’t about to let it happen again.
