Another cautionary tale for bargain hunters who arrange meet-ups with sellers online . . . Woman pulls gun, foils robbery
A woman turned the tables on a would-be robber who pointed a gun when she pulled a handgun of her own, police said.
Swatara Township (Pennsylvania) police said the woman and a friend were at a parking in the 500 block of South 29th Street on Wednesday afternoon to buy a video gaming system that was advertised on Facebook.
As we’ve detailed before, not all online sellers are on the up-and-up. At least the unidentified concealed carry permit holder in this case came prepared.
The seller’s accomplice pointed a gun and demanded money, and that’s when the woman pulled her own handgun that she has a permit to carry and confronted the would-be robber, police said.
While the woman didn’t get her X-Box, she will get to spend the holidays with her friends and family. The gunman and his two accomplices were later apprehended by the local 5-0, so all’s well that ends well. It’s a
Festivus Christmas miracle!
