Sacramento -- A broken key at a local "Superstore" on Monday prevented access into a locked glass case containing firearms, ammunition and knives preventing sales to customers. Pictured here are two "Daisy" rifles, similar to the one coveted by "Ralphie" in the hilarious movie, "A Christmas Story," set in Hammond, Indiana (where I was born). Thanks to a broken key, neither of these rifles "shot out an eye" -- at least not on Monday! I looked unsuccessfully for a lamp made from a mannequin leg, but it's a "Special Order" item.

Man helped police arrest trespassers


A Sacramento man jumped in to help police catch a trespassing suspect in his neighborhood Tuesday evening.

A police chopper hovered over the 2800 block of 23rd Avenue in south Sacramento looking for at least one suspect. That's when Danny Silva took matters into his own hands.

Silva spotted a man trying to climb over his neighbor's fence. Instead of waiting for police, he chased after the suspect.

"He tried to take off running. I chased him down the street, then around the corner," Silva recalled. "He ends up tripping. So I end up standing over him and tell him to put his hands behind his back, 'you're going to jail.'"

Police then handcuffed the suspect, but the neighborhood wasn't in the all clear.

One of Silva's neighbor's saw another stranger hiding in his backyard.
