Man stops would-be trespassers with dog, gun



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A man reportedly detained two men after he believed they were about to break into a building on his property.

The man said he heard what sounded like people walking around on his roof and believed two men might be breaking into a rooftop condominium unit. He reportedly confronted them with his German Shepard dog and a pistol and held them on the access ladder until responders arrived. There was a sign nearby at eye level that clearly stated the building was private property and prohibited trespassing.

The 18 and 19-year-old suspects said they are “climbing enthusiasts and heard the spot was a good one to climb,” according to a police report.

The two teens were placed under arrest for criminal trespass.
