Elderly Woman Gives Thug A Shock

After 10 p.m. on Tuesday night, Arlene Theresa Orms heard someone trying to break into her home by jiggling the knob and lock.

The thug could not jimmy the lock, so he kicked in the door. He did not know that Arlene owns a .25 caliber Beretta pistol, which she fired at him as soon as he entered.

Police don't know if he had been hit, but he ran from Arlene's home without stealing anything or harming her. One of the victim's neighbors, Gladys Betancourt, said, "Well that was awesome."

The 88-year-old woman has no criminal record and has lived alone since her husband died in 1993. The Miami woman's gun was taken for evidence, but police say she will be getting it back.
