Home Depot shoplifters threatened to shoot security www.privateofficer.com
After being approached, the two men took off in different directions.
One of them ended up at Bret Bradshaw’s East Valley home.
“He ended up walking into our house and we told him to get out,” said Bradshaw.
Bradshaw said the suspect, Christopher Gomez, didn’t want to go easy.
But it turned out Bradshaw wasn’t the only one home. So was his roommate, Scotty Cash, and Cash’s brother.
“He fought all the way out of the house, he fought all the way out of the house and my brother got him out some way or another,” said Cash.
But not even three men inside the home could stop Gomez from breaking in a second time.
Cash said after getting kicked out the first time, Gomez snuck back into the house through the back door.
“He was in my bed with a cover over him. And I would have never noticed it,” said Cash.
Tucked away and hidden in the back bedroom, Gomez may have gone unnoticed if it weren’t for the family dog, Ashes, who alerted everyone the man had returned.
“The dog let us know that he was back in the house,” said Cash.
After being spotted, Cash’s brother hand delivered Gomez to police who were waiting outside after a neighbor called 911 when seeing all the commotion.
“My brother had him around the waist, had him up in the air and picked him up and put him right there on the sidewalk and said ‘There’s your man,’” said Cash.
Police are still searching for the second suspect.
