You can make money by being legally armed.

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.

  1. After living in Wichita Falls for 10 years, I’m not surprised at all. We used to sit out in the yard under the shade tree and listen to the sirens on Friday and Saturday nights. It seems the crooks just get dumber by the year.
