Senior citizen stands up to local thief


Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— — I am 82 years old, and two men came to my house to work. I was outside, one man came in and stole $250 out of my purse. When I went to get $20 out of the purse the money was gone.

I called 911 and got my gun. It was kill or be killed.

The police would not come because I had a gun; 911 told me to put the gun down, I would not. I got my money back with a gun.
