CBS Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A homeowner in the Wilshire-Crest area of Los Angeles credits his quick thinking — and his “large gun” — for helping him stave off three apparent burglars.

KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz reports two out of three suspects were still on the loose Thursday after what appeared to be a botched burglary attempt.[cbs-audio url=”http://cbsla.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/homeowner-eme-1.mp3″ size=”” download=”” name=”Armed LA Homeowner Thwarts Attempted Burglary ” artist=”Ed Mertz”]

The male homeowner, who asked not to be identified, said he was taking out the trash Wednesday afternoon when he saw three young males jump the rear wall of his property on Redondo Boulevard, just north of Pico.

“I have a large gun, and I was thinking, ‘Why are they in my yard?'” he said.

As the three men ran toward him, the homeowner said he scrambled into his house and grabbed his firearm. Unsure if they were also armed, he confronted the suspects.
