Roberto Garcia is lucky to be alive and in jail when compared where he might have been with someone not as well trained as Caesar Ray.
Ray was alerted by a neighbor that a man was lurking around his Baton Rouge home. The home was being repaired after sustaining flood damage. Ray heard his daughter’s car alarm go off about the same time the neighbor called. Ray has had some law enforcement training and he grabbed his gun and went outside to find Garcia looking around. Facing a gun, Garcia gave up and Ray handcuffed him and called police. Then he streamed what was happening to Facebook.
He doesn’t understand why someone would attempt to burglarize a home with all the lights on and three cars in the driveway, but no ever said that most criminals are smart.
(WBRZ 2) – BATON ROUGE- A homeowner held a burglar at gunpoint and broadcast the entire thing on Facebook live Wednesday until police arrived.
Caesar Ray said his daughter’s car alarm went off in the middle of the night. They were working on their home that flooded. That’s about the same time that a neighbor called to let them know that she saw a man mulling around their house.
Ray, who has law enforcement training and past experience working for the Department of Corrections, met Roberto Garcia head on in the front yard. He handcuffed him and made sure he stayed put until police arrived…
As liberal and anti-gun as Facebook is, it’s quite possible that Ray’s video of his capturing and holding of Garcia will be available very long before they remove it. Ray warned others not to do what he did without the proper training, but I disagree in that everyone has the right to defend their property.
