An Oregon woman has gone viral after she detained a man she found walking on her property carrying nothing with him other than a book of matches.
Kat Cast, posted a video of the incident to Facebook over the weekend, said she found the man as she was driving into her property.
In the video, with smoke-filled skies behind her, Cast can be seen getting out of her car with her handgun drawn and approaching the suspicious man.
She wrote in her Facebook post:
Some of you still think we’re not being under attack. I found this individual walking in my property as I was driving in, all he had were some matches in his hand. Walked him out of my property at gunpoint and then when we got to some asphalt ground on the main road made him lay down while the cops arrived.
Cast can be heard telling the man “Get on the floor. Get on the floor right now — face down.”
“What are you doing on my property?” she demands. The suspect replied that he didn’t know it was her property.
“Did you light anything on fire?” she asks.
“No, ma’am,” he replies.
When she asks what he’s doing with a book of matches, he claims that it is because he smokes.
“You smoke? Where are your f***ing cigarettes?” Cast demands in response.
She says the man had no cigarettes on him.
According to her Facebook post, the police arrived and took the suspect into custody. And guess what? He had “multiple warrants one of them being assaulting a police officer.”
She also noted that the suspect should consider himself lucky to have been discovered by the lady of the house.
“Had my husband been here he would have been dead,” she wrote.
