NC teen girl uses dad’s rifle to scare off 3 men who broke into her home
A teenage girl is credited for scaring off intruders at her parents’ home with a rifle.
It happened on Lambe Road in Snow Camp around 12 p.m. Thursday.
Kirk Puckett, a spokesperson for the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office, said two sisters, 12 and 13, were inside the home when they heard knocking on the front door.
Puckett said when they looked outside, they saw three unfamiliar men. He said the older sister grabbed her dad’s rifle.
The suspects then broke in through the back door. Puckett said the 13-year-old pointed the rifle at them, causing them to run away without taking anything.
Neighbors praise the teen for her quick thinking.
