Okay, we don’t actually know if these two idiots are going steady – but they appear to be partners in crime.
A Harriman, Tennessee, homeowner walked into his garage recently, only to find 28-year-old Tawny Inman sitting on his steps. He retrieved his gun, and by the time he came back, he also found 30-year-old Robert Monroe who was coming down from the room above the garage.
The homeowner held the two at gunpoint until police arrived. Monroe claimed that he had walked right through the unlocked front door to enter the home, but police found a garage door opener on his person that had been stolen from the homeowner’s (unlocked) Jeep. Inman claimed to have been under the impression that Monroe was renting the property.
If she’s telling the truth, it seems like Monroe needs to come up with some date ideas that don’t land both of them in the county jail.
These two are lucky the homeowner didn’t feel his life was in danger, and that this defensive gun use did not involve a discharge of the weapon. Both were charged with aggravated burglary, and Monroe was additionally charged with theft of property and burglary from a motor vehicle.
And the homeowner may want to keep his car locked going forward.
