Back page: Couple turns tables on would-be robber

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque couple turned the tables on a burglar caught loading their belongings into his car. Albuquerque police spokesman Tanner Tixier says officers were called about a possible burglary Thursday. What they found was a 70-year-old man and his 66-year-old wife both pointing guns at 26-year-old Aaron Lujan. Tixier says the husband observed Lujan putting a generator, power tools and other items of his into an SUV. The man says he confronted Lujan but was ignored. The husband then grabbed his shotgun while his wife took a handgun and both held Lujan at gunpoint until authorities arrived. No one was injured. Tixier says Lujan had just been released from jail earlier in the day. Police did not say what charges Lujan will now face or if he has an attorney.
