WICHITA FALLS, Texas – The victim of a burglary turned down an offer of $10 from an intruder to not call police — and the result was a high speed chase Tuesday afternoon in eastern Wichita County.Sheriff David Duke said a resident was at home in the 2000 block of Highway 79 when two men came in and began taking things. The homeowner confronted them with a gun and the suspects put the property down. One of them threw a $10 bill at the homeowner, told the resident to not call police, then the intruders fled. The homeowner had already dialed 911 and a deputy spotted the getaway vehicle and gave chase.
And we can add, “From the comfort of your own home!”
I figure the $10 bill would become evidence and be retained by the police, otherwise if I were the owner, I would frame it and hang it as a trophy.
