Garden City Police say a Mom with a gun stopped an attempted unlawful entry into her home.  The mother was home at the time with her young son when she confronted eighteen year old man.  She then called the Garden City Police Department who arrived on the scene within two minutes.  Officers searched the area and found Sage Zumr attempting to gain access to another home.

Police apprehended Zumr after he refused to comply with their commands.  He was interviewed by detectives and booked into Ada County.  He's charged with: Unlawful Entry, Trespassing, and Obstructing and Delaying Officers.

Garden City Police Chief Allen commented in a release from Garden City PD:  “Anytime someone unlawfully enters a residence while the homeowners are home, especially when children are present, the event is extremely scary and the results can be tragic. Everyone has a reasonable expectation to be safe in the confines of their own home and most will take extraordinary measures to protect their family.Luckily no one was injured in this particular case.

 This is a great example of the police, dispatch, and the community
working together in order to safely solve a problem. The
homeowner did an excellent job of quickly providing dispatch with relevant information and dispatch quickly relaying that information,allowing
our officers to rapidly deploy and apprehend the suspect who was attempting to flee.
This was a dynamic situation that could have been very dangerous;
however, we were able to mitigate the danger by working together, communicating effectively and deploying expeditiously."
