A Covington man's plans were foiled by a homeowner's alarm and firearm last month.
Daphne and Robert Sanford told police they were asleep at their Mt. Carmel Road home on March 14 when the alarm began sounding.
The Sanfords said as they went to silence the alarm, they saw a man inside the home trying to beat them to punching the code in.
When deputies arrived, Robert has holding Corderro Rashadd Koonce at gunpoint behind the house.
Koonce, 25, of Justin Cove in Covington, was arrested after a brief struggle with police.
"I am so thankful that Mr. and Mrs. Sanford were not injured in the incident," said Tipton County Sheriff Pancho Chumley. "The alarm alerted this family and their quick thinking an the protection with their firearm prevented this case from escalating."
