Blount Co. Home Invasion Foiled

A suspect in a Blount County home invasion got a lot more than he bargained for Sunday night.

A man who lives on West Vinegar Valley Road in Friendsville says he was asleep when he heard someone trying to break into his home with a crowbar.

The man told officers he grabbed his rifle, and as the suspect entered the house, he saw the gun and took off, getting into a car with another man.

The homeowner says he fired three shots at the car, possibly hitting a tail-light.

The two men got away in a blue, 80’s model Ford Escort.
