Armed Homeowner Finds Burglar, In His House, ‘Gift-wraps’ Him For Police

Armed Group ‘Gift-Wraps’ Burglar, Mark Thompson

Albuquerque, NM –  A burglar who broke into a home, helped himself to the homeowner’s clothing, watched some TV, and had a beer, ended up being confronted by the homeowner and two neighbors.  The armed homeowner decided to gift-wrap the burglar and leave him in the front yard for the police, according to WSPA.

According to Albuquerque police, Mark Thompson was caught on video camera breaking into a home, ‘then making himself at home.’

In the video, Thompson can be seen wandering around the homeowner’s residence, helping himself to a jacket, turning on the TV, and helping himself to a beer from the refrigerator.

The incident occurred on Sunday afternoon, June 18, in a North Valley home.  When the homeowner, who wasn’t identified, received an alert from the alarm company that there was movement in his house, he called his neighbors across the street.  He continued to watch the live video on his phone, as his neighbors grabbed their guns.

The neighbors, Shandra Vestal and her husband, didn’t hesitate to help.  She said that she and her husband went to their garage, got two pistols, and met the homeowner in the cul-de-sac.  She said that they did this so the burglar couldn’t escape if he had a vehicle.

When all three were armed, they went to confront Thompson.  During the confrontation, Thompson offered no resistance, and was told to lay down on the floor, which he did.  Shandra Vestal said “We got his arms and his feet duct taped. Then we picked him up, carried him out to the front yard and waited for the police to show up.”

When Albuquerque police officers showed up, they found Thompson outside, face down, hands and feet duct-taped.  Shandra Vestal said officers told her that the burglar was wearing clothes that he had stolen from the previous house that he had broken into.

Thompson’s excuse for breaking into the man’s house?  He said, ‘I’m not trying to steal anything, I just want to be friends.”
