Quick-Thinking Teens Thwart Home Invasion Without Making a Noise

Recommended Posts



Kirk Puckett, a spokesperson for the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office, said a pair of young sisters from North Carolina stopped a home invasion when one of the girls armed herself with a rifle for protection.


It was around 12 p.m. Thursday when the 12 and 13-year-old girls, who were in their Snow Camp home on Lambe Road alone, heard someone knocking on the front door.


Peering outside, the girls saw three strange men standing outside – that’s when the older sister grabbed her dad’s rifle.


After they didn’t get an answer at the front door, the suspects went to the rear of the home and broke in through the back door.


Puckett said the 13-year-old was ready, and simply pointed the rifle at them when they entered the home.


Faced with an armed teenager, the trio immediately fled the scene.


Neighbors in Snow Camp are commended the young lady for her quick thinking and courageous actions to save herself and protect her sister.


“I am in awe of that young lady,” Jackie Garrison said. “To have had that kind of thoughtfulness going on in a time of crisis in her head to where that’s what she did, instead of running and hiding. She probably stopped something major from going on.”


Puckett believes the girls’ parents may have taught them how to react if they found themselves in a home intruder situation.


“There’s a school of thought where folks will say, ‘I’m armed, and if someone comes in my house someone is going to get shot or die,’” Puckett said. “There’s the other school of thought to retreat. Where someone would retreat out of another exit. Go into another room and barricade themselves.”


No arrests have been made associated with the incident and deputies are investigating whether this break-in is related to any others in Alamance County.


Way to go, ladies! Your parents must be extremely proud of you both!
