Armed homeowner deters rural burglary

An apparent burglary attempt was thwarted early today when a homeowner armed with a gun confronted an intruder north of Columbia.

Boone County sheriff’s deputies responded at about 3:15 a.m. to the 4700 block of Flamingo Drive. The homeowner reported that an intruder had forced entry through the front door, according to a news release from the sheriff’s department.

After being confronted, the suspect ran from the residence to a car parked in the road near the home, the sheriff’s department said.

Deputies described the suspect as a black male wearing a black mask and black clothing. Anyone with information can call CrimeStoppers at 875-8477.
