Four men were planning to commit a burglary at a Louisiana home Thursday, Sheriff Steve Prator of the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office said.
But they encountered someone who clearly took them by surprise: A "gun-toting homeowner," Prator noted.
Deputies were called to the Keithville home just before 10 a.m. about a burglary in progress, and the homeowner said hooded men carrying backpacks were gathered at her front door, the sheriff said.

However, when the homeowner met them at the door, she was carrying a handgun — and with that, the suspects fled in an SUV parked in the bushes, Prator said.

A passer-by told the sheriff’s office the suspects were seen on the porch of the home while another was hiding in the bushes, the sheriff said.

Caddo Sheriff’s Lt. Jackie Lewis spotted the suspects’ vehicle and stopped it, Prator said, adding that the vehicle contained several backpacks, masks, a large knife and marijuana.
