STEUBENVILLE, Ohio —
Police arrested a burglar in the act Thursday morning after the owner of the home he targeted held him at gunpoint.
Authorities said Tammy Takach was sleeping inside her Steubenville home when she heard what sounded like a door slamming.
She said she grabbed her gun and went downstairs to find an intruder in her house.
Police said when officers arrived, Takach was holding 23-year-old Ryan Geary at gunpoint.
“He stood up, put his hands up and said, ‘I’m sorry. I’m just going to go,’” Takach said. “I said, ‘The only place you’re going to go is jail. And if you move, you’re going to the morgue.’”
Geary was arrested on burglary charges and possession of criminal tools. He remains in the Jefferson County jail on $50,000 bond.
