Make the Burglar Clean Up...At Gunpoint!

Evil HR Lady was kind enough to point to this story about a Montgomery, AL couple who had been robbed.

The couple was stunned when they walked in the door to find the place ransacked, with many of their possessions scattered all over the place. And as Adrian went through the residence examining the damage in each room he was even more surprised to see the intruder brazenly stroll through the back door and run straight into him - wearing one of his own hats.

The startled burglar tried to run, but McKinnon pulled out a gun and aimed it at him. But he didn't call the police right away. Instead, this victim was devising a plan to make the robber pay for his crime on the spot. So he ordered the stranger to clean up the house. "We made this man clean up all the mess he made, piles of stuff, he had thrown out of my drawers and cabinets onto the floor," Tiffany recalls.

When cops were finally summoned, the suspect complained bitterly about the work he'd had to do, but they were less than impressed with his gripes. Neither were the McKinnons. "This man had the nerve to raise sand about us making him clean up the mess he made in my house," Tiffany emotes. "The police officer laughed at him when he complained and said anybody else would have shot him dead."

A 33-year-old man is facing burglary and theft charges. He remains locked up on $30,000 bond.

Even the kids don't a need a gun to their head to clean up the house!
