Joe Milspa, 92, may look a bit frail, but he still gets out to the pistol range fairly regularly. That practice with a 1911 pistol that he’s had for decades came in handy Sunday morning when a burglar armed with an axe broke into his home. Milspa produced his pistol and fired a shot that sent the home invader fleeing for his life.
A burglar in San Jacinto apparently picked the wrong house to break into Sunday Morning. He was confronted by a 92-year-old homeowner armed with a gun.
According to San Jacinto police, the intruder tried to gain forced entry by smashing a door with an ax at a house in the 1400 block of Chase Street at about 11 a.m.
