Source: Fox News

“A level-headed Army veteran thwarted a would-be thief’s attempt to rob his Omaha jewelry store by brandishing his handgun and sending the suspect running. Surveillance footage captured inside Sidrony Jewelers last Saturday shows a black-clad robber smashing one of the store’s glass windows to let himself inside. … Another camera captures the store’s owner, Garrett Peddicord, entering from a back room, leveling a pistol at the other person. … ‘Hey motherf*****!’ Peddicord shouted, sending the intruder scrambling. Seeing the gun, the masked man raises his arms and turns tail and runs, panicked, back through the broken window. … A Public Information Officer with the Omaha Police Department told Fox News Digital that the suspect has not yet been identified or arrested.” (05/10/24)
