George Phillips, age 82 of Meridian, Mississippi was going
up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the
light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the
bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off
the light, but saw that there were people in the shed
stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked, 'Is someone in your
house?' He said 'No.' Then they said 'All
patrols were busy. You should lock your doors and an officer
will be along when one is available.' George said,
'Okay'. He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then
he phoned the police again.

'Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because
there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you
don't have to worry about them now because I just shot
them.' and hung up.

Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a
Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance
showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the
burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George, 'I thought you
said that you shot them!'

George said, 'I thought you said there was nobody
available!'
