BLOOMFIELD, Ky. (LEX 18)-- In the middle of the night, a Nelson County man was woken by his wife screaming and dog barking.
It was an eventful Saturday morning for the quiet neighborhood. Chris Stevens, the homeowner, said a teen broke a lock on their daughter's bedroom window and snuck inside. But she wasn't home, instead he was greeted by the family dog.
Stevens says he woke up when he heard his wife screaming, so he grabbed his gun and pointed his pistol at the potential burglar.
Stevens says he held the teen at gunpoint until sheriff's deputies arrived.
Police say the burglar was identified as 18-year-old Garrett Inghram.
