Resource: http://blog.seattlepi.com/seattle911/2012/11/17/armed-homeowner-confronts-burglary-suspect/
A Seattle, Washington man returned to his home just after midnight Friday. According to Detective Renee Witt, "when he returned home he found a man in his house and the suspect was in the process of stealing items from the victim's home.

"The victim confronted the man and a struggle ensued. The suspect managed to break free and run off with some of the victim's property. The armed homeowner/victim chased after the suspect. The victim drew his handgun and ordered the suspect to stop. The suspect threw the victim's property on the ground and continued to run."

No shots were fired and neither the homeowner or criminal were injured. Police arrived on scene, contained the area, and after a chase that included a jump from a 20 foot ledge onto Interstate 5 the suspect was arrested and charges were filed.
