CHEROKEE COUNTY, NC (WRCB) — A man, wanted in Georgia, returned to the scene of his crime only to find himself staring down the barrel of a gun.
The woman holding it: a retired widow who says she wasn’t letting the man who stole from her get away.
“Never did I feel scared,” Sue Johnson says. “I was prepared to take care of myself.”
Sue Johnson came home to find she had been robbed.
“I got in from church and there was a mess everywhere,” says Johnson.
But it wasn’t until two days later she came face to face with the man who stole a shot gun, cell phone and medication from her house.
“There was a knock on my door,” Johnson says. “He was standing there with about a three foot long stick.”
Sue says 26-year-old Nathaniel Leatherwood returned to apologize.
“So I just pulled my gun out of my pocket and said I’m calling the sheriff’s office,” Johnson explains. “They’re going to come pick you up. I’m not going to let this happen to an old, retired lady who lives alone.”
