Elko: Trespassing Thief Calls 911 to Report Being Held at Gun Point-Why You Need to Set the Narrative
To people who have seen some hard living were arrested in Elko on Tuesday the 21st for breaking into a trailer and several outbuildings.
It appears that the female half of this craptacular crime duo called 911 to report she was being held at gun point by the property owner and a neighbor.
Elko deputies arrested James Johnson, 54, for one count of burglary and was held on $20,000 bail, and Claudia Knight, 59, for one count burglary with bail of $20,000 and on an outstanding warrant for animal at large.
In rural Nevada, you have a much better chance of the deputies being able to immediately tell the two sides apart, but it's still good regardless of where you live to call 911 and get your story in.
In a more confusing chaotic situation, perhaps if shots were fired, police might consider the property owner (you) as the aggressor. If things go sideways, they won't be sorted out after everyone is cuffed, by it might be in court, in the hospital, or the morgue.
If you discover or suspect a burglary or trespassing in progress, call it in. Stay on the line with the dispatcher is possible. Make sure they know you're the good guy. Don't give criminals a chance to set the narrative from the start.
