Dispatcher Attempts To Disarm Homeowner During Burglary

Would you have put the gun down?

80-year-old NJ Logan was home healing from hip replacement surgery when one or more burglars broke into her home while her husband was away. Mrs. Logan armed herself with her revolver and then made her way downstairs on her new hip, yelling a warning to the intruders. Fortunately, the criminals beat a hasty retreat once they realized the home was occupied instead of ambushing her when she came downstairs.

Once she got downstairs and found that the burglars had fled, Mrs. Logan then dialed 911… and was repeatedly told to put down her gun.

“When I called 911 she kept saying put the gun down. Put the gun down and I said I’ll put the gun down when I see the police,” NJ said.

Holmes Beach Police Chief William Tokajer said there have been a few incidents in NJ’s neighborhood — one she may have stopped.

“I think it’s a wake up call to any would-be burglar,” Chief Tokajer said.
