Jeremy Williams told authorities he was just trying to find a way to support his family. Instead, he wound up at the wrong end of two pistols and eventually in jail.
"We're just fed up and have had enough,"said Charles Baker about break-ins that have been happening in his neighborhood in southern Burke County. It's why Baker says he always has a loaded .357 magnum nearby. It's also why his nephew Adam Baker says he carries a 44 magnum in his truck.
Wednesday morning Adam noticed a gate had been torn down near a neighbor's home that is up for sale. The house had been broken into a couple of times lately and even had the heat pump stolen.
"I looked up the driveway and there was Williams trying to get away." Adam says he took out his pistol and fired a shot into the air. Williams froze where he was and Charles came running with his pistol to help.
Adam says he gave Williams a choice as he pointed the pistol at him. "I either call the law or take action right now."
Williams told him to make the phone call.
The suspect has been charged with felony break-in and attempted larceny. He told the Bakers and also authorities that he was stealing to make money for his family. "He said he had lost his job and was trying to support his kids," said Adam. "That's a fine example to set for his kids," said Charles, sarcastically.
The Bakers admit they took a chance confronting the suspect with their pistols. Authorities say you never know when a suspect may have an accomplice that you don't see, and that is the danger in any confrontation.
Still, the Bakers say they are pleased with what they did. "It's why I have a gun in the first place," said Charles. "We're isolated out here and we have to watch out for each other."
Williams is in the Burke County jail. Authorities have questioned him about other break-ins and say they may have more questions for him later.
