Home Intruder Ignores Elderly Couple’s Warning Sign: ‘Smith & Wesson Spoken Here’


A intruder targeted an Iron Town, Utah, home that bore the sign, “Smith & Wesson Spoken Here,” and was shot multiple times Tuesday.

Fox 13 reports that Iron County Sheriff’s Lt. Del Schlosser said the homeowners “are a little bit elderly” and “do have some disabilities,” however, they also had the firepower necessary for self-defense.

Schlosser said the elderly couple “did fear for their lives and they did shoot at [the intruder],” identified as 24-year-old Christian Holbert.

Holbert survived the gunshots, stripped naked, and walked out of the house to confront the Sheriff’s deputies who had arrived on scene. Schlosser said. “[A] Taser was used multiple times. He did not respond to that but the deputies were able to subdue him.”

Holbert was transported to the hospital in serious condition. Law enforcement believes he “was on some kind of drugs that allowed him to keep going despite being shot and tased.”
