A would-be burglar got more than he bargained for this morning in Bonney Lake when the homeowner confronted the man with a shotgun, firing once at the suspect’s vehicle as he fled the scene.

The suspect is described as a white male in his mid-30s. He is about 5’6″ or 5 ‘ 7″ tall with a stocky build and dirty blond hair. He was wearing a black, leather jacket, mirrored sunglasses and gray, wool gloves.
