house broken into

The gun that jeff used to hold the guy tight till the cops got there.
The blood stain on the carpet by the rock. The guys hand was all messed up. I guess he used his hand with the rock to bust the window. The rock that the guy used to bust the window. It was a rock from Kendra's front yard.
So this is how the story begins. Mon day November 24th at about 2:00 pm Jeff and I were just chillin on the couch and Rustin was taking a snooze, Then the we hear someone knocking at the door. So I get up to get it and it's Kendra our neighbor right across the street. She asked if Jeff was home I said yes. Kendra's husband got a phone call from the neighbor across the green belt and said the vacant home next to Kendra's house had a broken window and that Kendra should go check it out. Well kendra new Jeff was home so she felt better if he came and checked it out. We all walked over there Jeff Kendra and I and sure enough the window had been busted and opened. We new the family who used to live there and it had been vacant for about a year now. Jeff went into the home while Kendra and I stood out side. Jeff said well nothing looks to be stolen or damaged. Then he comes back over by us and I told him why don't you go check upstairs, He turned around and took one step then turned back around and mouths to us there is someone up there. So he gets out and runs home to get his gun. I closed the broken window as much as I could and told Kendra to call 911. Kendra and I move away from the window, Kendra is standing in the drive way of the home and I am stading kiddy corner from the broken window and more in font of the house in front of these other windows. Jeff comes back and heads towards the back of the house with his gun. I looked at kendra in the drive way then jsut so happened to look up through the window and saw up stairs in the loft a guy putting his hands up across his throat and was motioning to me to be quite. Holy shush my body became frozen I was a wee bit scared. I turned my head and told kendra get jeff tell him to come here I just saw a guy. Kendra is stiil on the phone with the cops and all of a sudden I see the guy 4 steps away from the bottom of the stairs. I screamed at jeff and said hurry he is at the bottom of the stairs. Jeff went up to the broken window and told the guy not to move he kept getting up and jeff said don't move and pulled his gun out. I thinking oh great hurry up cops. It seemed like it was taking them for ever. Then all of a sudden 5 or 6 cop cars come rushing down our street. Jeff moved away and the cops all entered and cuffed the dude. Well come to find out he was a boy from the boys ranch that had escaped again. He escaped the day before and decided to camp out inside this home until who knows when. They need to do a fence around that place. This is not our 1st go around with a boy escaping from the ranch. One knocked on our door last year while jeff was gone and my mother inlaw answered it and he wanted to come in and use my phone and bathroom. Anyways that is a whole other story! Lets just say Monday was one crazy day! I hate that I saw that guys face in the window like that because I have flash backs! Very Creepy! I think Jeff loved every minute of it. While us girls on the other hand did not. I guess we could say that does not happen every day and glad it does not. Well at least to us but I am sure in the world! So lock your doors because you never know.

That is super creepy but I bet Jon would love to wip out his gun on a guy if he got the chance too. Melissa told me about those boys running away and knocking on your door. They really need to get better handle of those boys.
