After spotting a burglar inside his house Friday morning, Peachtree City resident Fred Benson gave chase and fired two shots at the getaway truck as it backed down his driveway, according to a Peachtree City police report of the incident.
One of the shots Benson squeezed off from his Colt .38 revolver struck the bumper, and the other struck the grill and radiator of the 1999 Ford F150 just before it sped out of the Kedron Hills neighborhood, police said. Police believe one of the shots pierced the radiator, ultimately disabling the vehicle minutes later.
Within minutes of the incident, officers found the vehicle in Tyrone and arrested the two occupants, both of whom were women who live in Stone Mountain. Read More»
