1 House, 1 Day, 2 Burglaries

Indianapolis, Indiana, is a city where crime surpasses the national crime rate average by an incredible 89.4%, and this week showed no false indicators.

Indianapolis police were sent to the home of Alfred Burdine, where cops found the suspected burglar shot in the leg with Burdine standing above him with a gun.

The police report states that Burdine testified to being about to leave to go to work Tuesday morning when he saw what looked to be someone stealing the generator he had sitting in his garage.

“When I came around, I could see more of him. So, I parked right there, and I got out the car, and he was happy with the generator, walking off that way. And then I walked up behind him, and then I circled around him after I got his attention,” Burdine told police.

Burdine also stated that he had his gun pulled when he confronted the culprit. Upon the confrontation, Burdine emphasized that the defendant reached into his pocket, suggesting that he too may be in possession of a firearm and a clear threat to Burdine, so Burdine let off one shot hitting the man in his leg.

Burdine then called police and waited for their arrival. Burdine was taken to the police station to give a formal statement, and upon returning to his home, he realized that the night’s turbulence was not over yet.

When Burdine returned to his home, he stumbled upon yet another burglar attempting to steal from him. Knowing the drill from that morning, Burdine called the police once again but did not have to use his firearm.

One of the suspects is currently being charged with one count of felony burglary and one count of felony possession of methamphetamine. However, according to police reports, both suspects have been taken into custody. Alfred Burdine fortunately suffered no physical injuries or significant financial losses.

“I don’t know what is going on. I think we just need more patrols because there are a lot of people with drug problems, and there is no treatment for them,” Burdine said. “Since they closed Central State, where do these people have to go? You got people with mental problems; you got drug addicts. Where do you take these people, even if they wanted some help?” Burdine said in a statement.
