Home intruder found pistol-packing woman, police say

Posted: Updated:
GLENVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

A man who kicked in the front door of a York County home found a woman waiting for him with her handgun at the ready, according to police.

The 31-year-old Glenville woman was alone when she heard someone trying to force their way inside Wednesday, so she grabbed a handgun that she trains with on a regular basis, Southwestern Regional police said.

She then called 911 and reported a burglary in progress, police said.

When the man eventually kicked in her front door and entered the home in the 7700 block of Glenville Road, the woman leveled the gun and told the intruder not to come any closer, police said.

He obeyed her order and was found on the front porch of a neighbor's home when an officer arrived minutes later.

Cory R. Gootee, 19, of Stewartstown, told the officer he had left a neighbor's house to smoke a cigarette, became disoriented, and believed he had been locked out of the neighbor's home, police said.

Police said Gootee may have been intoxicated.

He was charged with criminal mischief, and the woman requested that he pay to repair her door, police said.
