Police: Texas Homeowner Holds Thieves at Gunpoint

Police in the Texas Panhandle have arrested two people after a homeowner held them at gunpoint and reported that they stole from his backyard shed.

Authorities said 45-year-old Bronnie Vaughn and a 17-year-old were being held at the Randall County Jail Tuesday morning on charges of burglary of a building and theft. The homeowner held them at gunpoint Monday after reporting that the pair had broken into the storage shed and taken a bicycle.

No injuries were reported.

Online jail records didn't list attorneys for Vaughn.

The Associated Press doesn't typically identify juveniles accused of crimes.
