If you’re ever so hard up that you figure your only option is to break into someone’s home and steal their stuff, just remember — you don’t want to mess with Jill Stucker. The 64-year-old from Lake City, Florida knows how to handle a hairy situation, not to mention her gun. “Police said Jill Stucker was watching TV about 9:20 p.m. at her home in the 800 block of Northeast Lake Drive when 26-year-old Milton Barber Jr. broke in through the bedroom window.” Is it ageist/sexist to say most 64-year-old women wouldn’t have had a clue what to do in the same situation? Yes, yes it is. But Ms. Stucker handled herself like a real operator . . .
First, she got her gun. Second, as news4jax.com reports, she made for the back door, probably figuring the home invader would take what he wanted and skedaddle. But he skedidn’t.
