George Phillips of Meridian, Mississippi was going up to bed when
his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed,
which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the
back door to go turn off the light but saw that there were people
in the shed stealing things. He phoned the police, who asked 'Is
someone in your house?' and he said 'no'.

Then they said that all patrols were busy, and that he should simply
lock his door and an officer would be along when available.

George said, 'Okay,' hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police
again. 'Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there
were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to
worry about them now because I've just shot them.' Then he hung

Within five minutes three police cars, an Armed Response Unit, and
an ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence and caught the
burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George: 'I thought you said that you'd
shot them!'

George said, 'I thought you said there was nobody available!'
