A 28-year-old Augusta, Georgia, man was awakened by noise about 1:15 a.m. on a Saturday. When he exited his bedroom, he came face to face with an intruder, who was holding a water jug full of change. He chased the intruder off the premises and locked the door so he could not get back in. However, the man soon realized there was still somebody in the home. He called his mother, who also lived at the home but was at work, which prompted her to immediately drive home. The man waited in the driveway for her, and after she arrived—armed with a gun—they entered the residence. Hearing a noise, they proceeded upstairs, where they encountered a man standing near the window in the mother’s bedroom. The woman fired at the man, causing him to jump out of the second-floor window and jump over the backyard fence. Deputies discovered a white cap, part of a white blood-stained jacket, but no intruder. The incident was still under investigation. (wrdw.com, 12/13/21, August, Ga.)
