Would-be burglar subdued by victim
Garrett Randal Duggin is charged with aggravated assault.

A man who stole a gun from a pawn shop and then tried to rob a home with the firearm has been hit with felony charges.
The burglar, Garrett Randal Duggin, 32, is charged with aggravated assault and aggravated burglary.
His charges come after police responded to the burglary of Cash-4-U Pawn on Smithville Highway around 1:45 a.m. Wednesday. When they arrived they found the front door glass had been shattered. A quick inventory revealed jewelry and a handgun had been taken.
Even as they were investigating the break-in, officers were dispatched to Hannah Street in the city where an altercation was taking place. When they arrived they found Duggin had been subdued.
“The victim stated that he was in his residence when he heard someone kicking in his back door,” reported officer Katelyn Neal. “Upon opening the door there was a male wearing a hoodie, pointing a handgun at his head.”
The victim tried to grab the gun from the burglar. He was assisted by a friend who was able to get the gun away from Duggin and pin him to the ground.
Officers quickly traced the gun that had been taken from the intruder as the one stolen during the pawn shop burglary minutes before.
In addition to Duggin, a female accomplice, Deanna Moxley, 48, has been charged with the burglary. The jewelry and gun from the burglary have been recovered by police.
