When a man from Louisville, Ky., failed to break into a home, the trouble didn’t stop there. He then fell off a ladder, broke his leg and called 911.
According to the Courier-Journal, Kenneth Dewhawn Splunge, 34, climbed a fence onto a roof and kicked out the skylight of a home. However, he dropped a ladder into the residence and upon his descent, fell through the skylight and broke his leg.
Splunge was later found by emergency personnel after calling the police for help. He was taken to a hospital and two days later was charged with second-degree burglary. Splunge is being held on a $2,500 cash bond.
Stay safer on- and off-duty
While every call can’t be as simple as the burglar giving himself up, police need to be ready for just about anything. Whether they are on- or off-duty, they likely need an efficient place to store their guns.
Various accessories are useful for securing police gear, including a portable safe or a lockable storage box. Whether an officer is storing guns, ammunition or other sensitive police items, it’s critical to keep them out of sight and out of the wrong hands. These storage devices are essential for every patrol car and police officer’s’ home. They can be installed in the trunk or back seat of a vehicle, ensuring a police officer has quick access while being able to rely on secure storage.
A portable safe is perfect for securing a firearm as it is made of welded steel. A three-digit combination lock ensures an officer is the only one who can quickly access the contents of the safe.
On the other hand, the lockable storage box provides even more room. If an officer needs to store guns along with tactical gear, this product is the ideal solution as it offers 4,000 cubic of lockable storage space.
