Armed Oregon Homeowners Thwart Thieves

A couple who had been repeatedly robbed stopped a burglary when they arrived home armed.

Troy Eaton and his girlfriend Lisa-DesVoigne had been the target of break-ins three times in the last ten days.

Despite installing a home security system to ward off criminals, the couple were just returning home when they discovered yet another theft was taking place.

“We were tired of being victimized, tired of being traumatized and violated,” Lisa-DesVoigne said.

While the security system didn’t deter 20-year-old Edward Cerf from breaking in, it did notify the couple that there was cause for alarm. Having decided enough was enough, they took action.

Eaton held Cerf at gunpoint giving Lisa-DesVoigne time to call the police and direct them to the home.

“We were determined to keep him there,” she said. “It makes me feel like I took some power back from them, from these criminals.”

Eaton added, “Certainly I didn’t want to kill anybody, but the situation is frustrating enough where we had to take some kind of step to stop it.”

Law enforcement arrived within minutes and arrested Cerf as well as his purported accomplice Gabriella Solis, who admitted she was supposed to be the “eyes and ears” during the theft.

Serf and Solis were charged with second-degree burglary. There is no word whether they are responsible for the previous break-ins.

  1. Good for you I’m glad you caught the thieves. Hopefully the judge will throw the book at them. But the way the system is now day it’s the criminals who get away with everything and the victims are the one who suffer

  3. Shoot them in the ankle as there isn’t a replacement for an ankle. He will be disabled for the rest of his life. This is great. Screw those scums. If needed shoot the ankle & knee on the other leg (One each). He will have a hell of a time taking a P**s.

  4. It’s good that you were armed, but you have to be careful just the same. Occasionally the thieves are armed also, and may not be as forgiving as you.
    Congratulations!

  5. I applaud you two ! We need the second amendment. If more people would have guns then the criminals would never know what they would walk in to. Unfortunately the government gos after the law abiding citizens not the criminals!

  6. NOW IF THESE INDIVIDUALS, WHO WAS CAUGHT “RED HANDED” IN THE ACT OF VANDIALISM & BURGLARY, DOESN’T GET BROUGHT UP BEFORE ONE OF THOSE LIBERAL JUDGES, WHO NORMALLY LETS THEM OFF, WITH JUST A SLAP ON THE WRIST, PERHAPS JUSTICE CAN THEN BE FINALLY SERVED ON THIS COUPLE OF WOOD BE POTENTIAL CARREER THIEVES & THEY CAN HAVE THEIR LIFE CHANGED & TURNED ARROUND FOR THE BETTER. AMEN~!~

  7. If they are in your house I would have shot them many times in the arms or legs & feet. If they don’t go to prison at least they will wish they had. Make sure they are in your house. Make them go even if they don’t want to!!!

  8. Bravo-zulu!! You did it right… if you catch them you have to be willing to keep them. This leads me to believe that you were correctly trained and willing to use whatever force was necessary. It is so rare to read about the good side gaining a win. Job well done! We need to continue to hear about cases like these.

  9. Glad you caught the thieves and that you were also safe after the incident. This in the news will also discourage others with similar ideas to rob you or your neighbors. Most thieves don’t like complicated jobs…they like easy targets- and you and your girlfriend are no longer easy targets…lol!

  10. A CAP IN THEIR A*S, WOULD HAVE TOUGHT THEM A LESSON, CLEARLY DRUGGIES.
    CRIMINALS HAVE NO FEAR OF ENTEREING A PRIVATE PROPERTY, BUT THEY SHOULD.
