One of the stereotypes of Texas is that most people have a gun. Well maybe this guy should wait til people leave the house before robbing it.

Christopher Moore attempted to rob a house in Parker County, Texas. Well the homeowner, James Gerow heard some commotion. He thought it was his son, until he got up and realized his son was still asleep in his own room. Gerow noticed a truck parked outside that he didn’t recognize, grabbed a handgun and walked outside.

Moore ran from the home toward his pickup, but Gerow chased him down and ordered Moore to stop and took his keys. Moore climbed into his truck and sat there while Gerow and his son pointed guns at him. Gerow’s wife Lindy was the first to call 911.

“You better come quick,” she told authorities, “or my husband’s going to shoot him.”


Then Moore, still inside the truck, placed his own call.

“I’m out in the country somewhere. Some guy’s got a gun on me,” he said in the call. “He’s going to come shoot me,” he continued.
“Who’s going to shoot you?” the operator asked.

“I don’t know, this dude in the red jacket.” Moore said.


When cops arrived on the scene they assesed the situation and Moore was arrested. Moore was charged with burglary of a habitation, he’s currently being held on a $35,000 bond.
