New Orleans, LA
By Trymaine Lee
AS printed in The Times Picayune:
A 30-year-old New Orleans man was captured Sunday after a Carrollton homeowner walked in to find him watching pornography on the Internet, New Orleans police said. Richard Barnes, who police said crawled through the doggy door of a home in the 1200 block of Lowerline Street, was caught Sunday by the home's owner after she returned from an afternoon outing, police said. The woman unlocked her front door, walked in and almost immediately encountered Barnes masturbating while online, police said. The frightened homeowner grabbed her oversized dog and bolted from the house.
The homeowner grabbed her oversized dog??? Okay the oversized dog is the explanation of how the guy got through the doggy door. I get that. It’s just an odd way of putting it – I grabbed my oversized dog? I think Ms Lee is getting a little tongue and cheek with this story.
Also if the home owner came upon him immediately, where was this oversized Dog? I mean hello wouldn’t the oversized dog be barking? Wouldn’t the oversized dog have ripped the guy’s throat out? Or at least peed on his leg?
Why would anyone have a doggy door big enough for a person to fit through? That’s just stupid! Why would a burglar break into someone’s house, turn on the computer, go to a porn site and start going for it uhhh kind of stupid too?
The article concluded that Barnes was wanted for a stream of burglaries not a stream of semen which apparently they are going to DNA test the computer for in order to convict…
