 Cheviot Hills, CA -
(FOX 11) "I'm not a sitting duck," says Carla.  She prefers to keep her last name private.  Carla is a Cheviot Hills homeowner who scared away burglars when she grabbed her shotgun and fired.

Carla told us her dog woke her up when he started barking. She looked outside and saw a man in her backyard, another waiting by a car.

Carla wasted no time. Wearing her nightgown, she went outside and fired once toward the ground.  Carla says, it was just to scare them off. It worked. The two suspects ran back to a white sedan and drove off. 

Carla says she heard one of them screaming, "Crazy b**ch has a gun!!"

This all happened around three this morning. Detectives say two male hispanics broke into a home on the 10500 block of Blythe Ave. in Cheviot Hills. The burglars got inside the home through the garage. They were able to steal several items while the homeowners slept through it all. 

The men hit a second home about 40 yards away on the 2400 block of Patricia Ave. That's when their luck ran out.  As they tried to gain access to the home, 59-year-old Carla came out with her shotgun.

She says, "You have to at some point in time, take responsibility for your own safety and that's all I was doing."

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
