We don’t have many illegal aliens in WV. We do have some aliens but these are mostly tourist who believe hillbillies still don’t wear shoes or have running water. I was talking with custom rifle builder Charlie Sisk the other day and he relayed this story. Charlie lives about two hours from Houston, Texas.
Seems Charlie was laid back for the evening, eating ice cream and watching TV when he heard something outside. He krept to the window and what did he see but two little Hispanics fiddling with his power pole and electrical service. That’s when the power went out.
Charlie prudently calls 911 and they tell him the cavalry is on the way. Now, Charlie lives in a fairly rural neighborhood but there are several houses within a hundred yards of his home and gun shop.
In short order a couple deputies arrive. They get off their mounts, um, sorry – hey, it is Texas. They get out of their cars and one is armed with an AR. Charlie is still on the line with the 911 dispatcher.
One officer slips behind Charlie’s house and Charlie hears a gunshot. Um, nope, make that two shots. He relays this to the 911 dispatcher who yells for confirmation from the Deputy and Charlie hears him on the radio denying there were shots fired. (Seems the officer had an accidental discharge. Um, I’m sorry make that two ADs.)
Anyway, the short version is the cops rounded up the bad guys – two illegal aliens – who were looking to steal all the copper in and around Charlie’s home and shop.
Both were under age too. You would think a criminal would be smart enough to not try and break the home of a guy that builds guns for a living! Charlie’s has a gun or two laying around the house. I know, I’ve been there.
As a sidebar to this story, Charlie has offered to pay for and provide the necessary instructor for additional firearm’s training for the department – specifically the deputy that had the AD – in hopes that does not happen again.
Good for you Charlie, but I’m wondering, Maybe those two shots were compliance / warning shots. Obviously these two illegals could not read – why else would they attempt to break into the home of a gun builder. Maybe they could not read “police” on the side of the horses. OK, I’m sorry, on the side of the police cars.
