"Vance West, 92, is a veteran and father of three. He lives by himself outside Bois d'Arc on more than 100 acres..... West says three men stole nearly $3,000 worth of equipment from one of his sheds. He missed the first time they came around, but not the second.“He started climbing over the gate, and I told him not to climb over. He climbed over anyway, so I pulled a gun on him,” West said.“I told him, ‘Do you see where it's cocked?’ He says, ‘I can see,’” West said. “He was sassy. He told me he wasn't going to do it.”The men got away when West tried to flag down someone on his county road." (03/08/12),0,3526257.story
