An armed 72 year old woman scares off burglars inside her home

CRESCENT CITY- A 72-year old Crescent City woman scared off two burglars after she surprised them at her bedroom door holding a handgun.
 
It happened in the 3000 block of Lower Lake Road early Wednesday morning. The Del Norte County Sheriff’s Office says the two suspects, Donald Webb and Zachariah Dungan both 31 years old of Crescent City, possibly entered the woman's house through the garage. After the woman confronted the two with a gun, they ran out of the house and took off in a car driven by 25 year old Candice Swain, also of Crescent City.
 
The victim was able to provide deputies with a detailed description of the vehicle. After a short pursuit, police arrested all three for burglary, evading police, resisting, and conspiracy.
