SATSUMA, La (WVLA) --Livingston Parish Sheriff's Detectives are calling it a case of the right place at the right time.

It happened last Friday afternoon in Satsuma.

Detectives say three would-be thieves tried to break in to a woman's home.

What they didn't suspect was for the homeowner to be packing a .357 magnum pistol.

Detectives say, the woman surprised the trio with the gun who then jumped into a "getaway" car.

But they say, the woman's brother met them outside who just happened to be pulling into the driveway.

A BRPD officer was able to stop the car on I-12 between Satsuma and Livingston.

Three men are charged:

Leon Alexander Guerin, a 19 year old black male who listed his address as 1967 Kaufman Street, Baton Rouge, La., was charged as follows: 2 Counts Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling
 

Dominique Griffin, a 19 year old black male who listed his address as 8165 Plank Road, Baton Rouge, La., was charged as follows: 2 Counts Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling

Scevera F. Alexander, Jr., a 19 year old black male who listed his address as 636 Crestview Ave. Baton Rouge, La., was charged as follows: 2 Counts Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling



All three men remain in the Livingston Parish Detention Center in lieu of a $100,000.00 bond.
