    Thumbs up Intruder apprehended after breaking into residences of elderly

    Stachyra of Saylorsburg said he and family were at the 1016 S. Prospect St. home early Thursday, preparing to take his mother, Stella, to the casino for her 85th birthday. Then, they heard a smash. The suspect, the woman's tenant on the other side of the double-block, soon emerged. The man wielded a metal ice chopper and hammer.
    Stachyra, 55, cocked his gun and threatened to shoot.
    "She said 'don't shoot,' and he ran out the window. I wouldn't have had a problem. I listened to my mother and didn't shoot, and the cops said I would have had the right to shoot," Stachyra said.

    "the cops said I would have had the right to shoot"

    I wonder what the cops would've said had he squeezed the trigger ?
