MONTGOMERY, Ala. - A burglar in Montgomery chose the wrong family to mess with, literally. Adrian and Tiffany McKinnon returned home on Tuesday after a week away to find that thieves had emptied almost everything the family of five owned, Tiffany McKinnon said through tears.
"Tears just rolled down my face as I walked in and saw everything gone and piles of trash all over my home," she said.
Adrian McKinnon sent his wife to see her sister while he inspected the piles left behind. As he walked back into the sunroom, a man walked through the back door straight into him, Tiffany McKinnon told the Montgomery Advertiser in a story Thursday.
"My husband Adrian caught the thief red-handed in our home," she said. "And what is even crazier, the man even had my husband's hat sitting right on his head."
Adrian McKinnon held the suspect, 33-year-old Tajuan Bullock, at gunpoint and told him to sit on the floor until he decided what to do.
"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 McKinnon said.
When police arrived, Bullock complained about being forced to clean the home at gunpoint.
"This man had the nerve to raise sand about us making him clean up the mess he made in my house," she said. "The police officer laughed at him when he complained and said anybody else would have shot him dead."
Capt. Huey Thornton, a police spokesman, said police arrested Bullock at 2 p.m. Tuesday on burglary and theft charges. He was being held in the Montgomery County Detention Facility on a $30,000 bond.
"The victims were lucky in this case to be able to catch the suspect in the act and hold him until police arrived," Thornton said.
I would add that they were smart enough to have a firearm in their possession and skilled enough to use it.
I don't think the perp would have cleaned up the house and complied with being detained had the owner of the home enticed him with Free Healthcare.
shoulda hanged him out a hind the back....
Different title, so it didn't show up in FR search.
...And do the dishes to!!
Gonna leave this one up for the wife to get a chuckle out of...
I don’t think I would have done the same thing in this circumstance. I’d be looking for a cleanup crew experience in removing blood and brains.
“I don’t think the perp would have cleaned up the house and complied with being detained had the owner of the home enticed him with Free Healthcare.”
You gave me a great morning laugh! Thanks.
And the burglar will sue them for emotional distress and humiliation- and probably win.
Not in Bama.
I would hope not!
Or in Texas.
Butchered, 10 syllable, apostrophe filled names are common with African Americans now, especially females. The more ludricous sounding, the more difficult it is to pronounce, the better they like it. Its a cultural thing, like formalizing ebonics in a name.
You missed a spot...
I used to have a job that involved processing tax forms from low income households (mostly from inner city Atlanta). I noticed a fairly common trend of mothers giving all their kids first names that start with the same two letters (along with the usual odd spelling of common names), such as: DeWayne, Dejuan, DeShonda, Demetrius... The kids rarely had the same last name.
“like formalizing ebonics in a name.
Sounds that way.
Let me guess - they "disrespected" him???
The federal DOJ will prosecute these folks for violating the criminal’s civil rights. Involuntary servitude, don’tchaknow.
