Twenty-four year old Belgie Tapia answered her door thinking that United Parcel Service was delivering her a package when a man put a gun to her head, telling her to get on the ground. However, her son intervened with a shotgun, saving her life and driving the criminals away.
“They proceeded to put the gun to my head and threaten me,” Tapia said. “If I didn’t find them anything of value they were going to shoot me.”
The man was wearing a UPS hat and shirt and so Tapia believed it was safe to open the door to the man.
The man, according to sheriff’s deputies, was 23-year-old Travis Brown. Brown also had an accomplice, 24-year-old Kayla Oharrow, who followed behind him into the house as they looked for something of value.
