A small family pet is credited with preventing a burglary early this morning. Around 3:15 a residential burglary was interrupted by “Bean” a 3-pound Chihuahua. Bean began growling and barking loudly waking up his owner. The owner went into the living room and found a male intruder standing in their kitchen going through their refrigerator. The male left the residence but was caught a short distance away by police.
The family was very proud of Bean for his excellent guard dog skills, which according to his owner was entirely unexpected. After his busy morning and a quick photo shoot Bean was content to go back to sleep.
