There was a waddling, quacking duck looking inside cars and took off (like a thief) when confronted, and I gather from the timeline of the story that the police had been called and were on the way when the homeowner approached the "duck".
" The man confronted the suspect, chased him, tackled him and held him until police arrived and took the thief into custody.
Sgt. Moore said the suspect had stolen items on him and is believed to have broken into a nearby house. The suspect, 40, was lodged in the county jail. Sgt. Moore went to the man’s house and recovered additional stolen property"
Could something have gone wrong? Absolutely. Did it? No
Is there a message given now in that neighborhood for anyone else who may be thinking of burlarizing cars and/or homes (possibly when families are in the home and someone gets hurt or killed)? Absolutely.
Can that message translate to any neighborhood in Monroe? We can only hope.
GOOD for the homeowner! Good for everybody!
