Business Owner Burglarized 15 Times Camps Out In Store With Gun, Catches Crook...

OROVILLE (CBS13) – After a string of burglaries at his Oroville store, a fed-up business owner fought back to catch the crooks.

Darin Fowler says he camped out at his business and confronted the burglar.

“This is my property; I’m going to defend it,” he said.

Over the past three months, Fowler says he’s felt pretty defenseless.

“They were taking chain saws, weed eaters, lawn mowers. They would remove complete generator heads off generators,” he said.

Fowler says burglars cut into the fence of his business, Air Cooled Unlimited, 15 times and made off with valuable equipment and metal.

“They had actually cut this all the way down, and zip tied it open, spread it right open,” Fowler said, showing CBS13 the area of the fence the burglars cut through.

Fowler spent money installing new fencing and surveillance cameras, which caught the suspect’s blurry images. Still, they’d keep coming back.

So when Fowler saw a new hole in his fence Friday, he decided it was enough.

That’s when we decided we were going to stick around and see if we can catch them,” he said. “We were actually sleeping on the concrete right behind the shop.”

Around 3:30 a.m. Saturday, they heard a noise.

“They were yanking units through the fence,” said Fowler.

With a concealed weapon permit, Fowler pulled out his gun.

“As soon as he saw the gun he was very compliant,” he said.

Fowler ordered the suspect, Dillon Masterson, to the ground, said Police. Masterson He dropped to his knees, and within two minutes, an officer took him into custody.

Officers searched Masterson’s home and allegedly turned up a number of items from Fowler’s business, says Fowler.

It seems that they were stealing items that were stored outside of the building. I'm not sure how else he could secure it other than fencing, security cameras, and hiding out with a gun.

Fences do not notify police, neither do cameras. If you have a fence install a tremble wire on it and connect it to the alarm system. It works rather well.

Not a bad idea, I've never heard of that. I wonder how many false alarms you would get though, such as in high winds, animals, etc.

In the 2 years that I had one installed at the amity inn, there was 0 false alarms. It did call for police when the idiots climbed the fence and set the building on fire

Another example of how crime won't cease because the criminals see they are being recorded. Cities installing public surveillance cameras to deter crime are only advancing the dystopian nightmare from Orwell's 1984
