A burglar begged for his life on Saturday night after he was confronted by a homeowner armed with a shotgun.
Homeowner Brian Dye’s wife woke him upon hearing the sounds coming from the kitchen. Dye grabbed his shotgun and was able to confront Ward while he was climbing through the window. The 24-year old immediately began begging for his life and screaming, “don’t shoot!”
When police arrived on the scene Ward admitted to using meth prior to the burglary. He has been charged with aggravated burglary and vandalism.
