A would-be burglar was stopped in his tracks by a Spokane Valley homeowner armed with a 12-gauge shotgun who said he's had enough with thieves on his property.
Homeowner Chris Malloy saw a man walk behind his shed around 9:15 Tuesday morning in the 13600 block of E. 20th. It's the third time something like this has happened to him in three months and he's sick of it.
"I was in the house, walked past one of the bedroom windows and just saw him walking across the golf course, the yard, then I knew something was not right," Malloy said.
Malloy also saw a knife on the suspect's belt, so he grabbed his shotgun.
"I'm not the only one who's been hit on this block," Malloy said. "There have been numerous other hits."
Malloy took his fate into his own hands by holding the shotgun up and telling 36-year-old Kevin Neu to stop. Neu was surprised and then promptly sat down as the two men waited for Spokane Valley deputies to arrive.

I guess Malloy doesn’t have a balcony to fire both barrels from.
