Neighbor thwarts break-in, detains suspect at gunpoint

PELHAM, N.H. (AP) – A man who broke into a New Hampshire home was caught at gunpoint by the homeowner’s neighbor, police said.

Andrew Billcliff, 31, of Plaistow, was arrested and charged with burglary and breach of bail Wednesday after his attempted break-in was thwarted by a neighbor.

The homeowner said that when she arrived home Wednesday afternoon she saw a car that was not familiar parked in her driveway with the engine running. She then went to her neighbor’s house and stayed there while he checked on her home.

Upon entering the house, the neighbor encountered an intruder in the house and proceeded to show his firearm. He then helped detain him at gunpoint in the driveway until officials arrived.

“He held the burglar at bay until we could arrive,” said Pelham Police Sgt. Matt Keenliside. “So he didn’t do anything wrong there, he’s OK.”

The suspected thief tried to take some family heirlooms and the kids’ piggy-banks.

Poor man’s Trifecta today Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes, with an unknown number in the wind. Small problem, they’ll be on gurneys soon enough. Unless they take art classes, of course.

“You seem … to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all contitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy… The Contitution has erected no such single tribunal.” –Thomas Jefferson, 1820

    This poor man will take the trifecta. “Since he didn’t do anything he is OK.” ?!?daHell?!? Guess the law in Pelham NH is different from Pelham GA. Pelham GA, named for Major John “The Gallant Young” Pelham, Stuart’s Horse Artillery, CSA and the home of SGT Carl L. Palmer, B Company, 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry, died at LZ-X Ray 15 Nov ’65. A neighbor there would have done a shoot, shovel, shut up. Or a pickup truck ride to the Flint River Swamp.

    Art class. indeed. A Masterpiece painted using the blood of mine enemies for paint.
