Maria Luce of McKinney, Texas, walked into her living room as a thief was breaking into her home. The woman watched as a person wearing a mask tried to enter the home in broad daylight, KTRK reported.
She described the moment she came face-to-face with the intruder: “They opened the door, all in black and a mask, step in my home, see me and turn and run. Had it been two seconds earlier, he would have been upstairs with my children.” Luce claims to know what was the target of the robbery — a pricey pair of shoes that her son recently posted for sale online.
Her son was selling a pair of Yeezys, made by Kanye West. The shoes sell out quickly and have a high price tag, with an average resale value of $2,471. Home surveillance cameras were watching when the incident occurred and captured the robber’s image and every move.
Police were called to the home, and an investigation began. The mother didn’t leave it at that, though. With a gun in her hand, she put out her own warning on Facebook to the masked person who attempted to steal from her family.
The angry mother let the thief know: “We are locked and loaded. And WILL use it. This. Is. NO. GAME.” She thanked the person who tried to get in for leaving their fingerprints behind for police and let him or her know that her home security cameras recorded the whole thing.
