Man awakes, chases suspect

An 80-year-old man armed with a shotgun sent a would-be burglar running it [sic] into the woods.

Scratching sounds woke Edward Childress about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday at his home on 6363 U.S. Business. When Childress went to investigate, he found a man standing on a ladder looking in his window, according to a sheriff’s office report.

Childress grabbed his shotgun, and the man ran off.

Rockingham County Sheriff’s Deputy Mike Edwards and his dog, Amos, tracked Kennith David Eanes to train tracks about a mile away.

Eanes, 40, of 6960 N.C. 770 in Ruffin, is charged with attempted breaking and entering, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bail is set at $10,000, and a court date is scheduled for Aug. 21.
