HUNTSVILLE, Alabama - Police arrested 21-year-old Dylan Ransom Stanfield after he ran from an attempted burglary around 6:50 p.m. Thursday, according to a report from the Huntsville Police Department.
Police said the victim was inside her apartment in the 4000 block of Bonnell Drive when she heard someone try to come through her front door. After going to get her gun, she went inside her living room when the offender kicked the door open and entered the apartment.
Police said she confronted the offender and he ran from the apartment. Officers were able to locate Stanfield shortly after running from the apartment and arrest him.
They have probably caught him before. Most likely on probation or awaiting sentencing. In California for this low level crime and with the jails full he will be out by the weekend.
Except this happened in Huntsville, Alabama.
All the more reason to shoot intruders. It keeps them out of action longer than the police do.
