    Gun Store Owner Shoots At Shoplifter

    January 7, 2008 - 11:21AM
    Katie McDevitt, Tribune

    A Tempe gun store owner was arrested along with a suspected thief Saturday after the owner fired four rounds at a shoplifter who stole a pistol out of his shop.

    Police said a man walked out of the S&S Firearms store, 906 S. Priest with an AK pistol worth $750 without paying for it. Store owner Stephen Saridakis, 59, then followed the man outside the business and pointed a .45 caliber handgun at him while demanding his weapon back.

    The man gave the gun back to the owner, but left right away. Police said the store owner then fired four shots at the thief’s vehicle with his handgun, flattening a tire.

    Police arrested Nathaniel Jones, 21, a short time later at 1129 W. Elna Rae on suspicion of theft of a firearm. Saridakis was also arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault with a firearm. Jones was taken to Tempe City Jail and Saridakis was released pending review of the charges by a prosecutor.

    No one was injured during the shooting.

    This case will be bumped down to State Court and he'll plead to Disorderly Conduct.

    send the shooter to jail. the guy gave the gun back then left and he shot him? thats not self defense. thats just a whacko who wanted to kill someone.

    saridarkis or w.e makes gun owners look bad. he shouldve kept him at gunpoint and on the ground. he should have never fired those shots. that kind of shit is what causes gun owners like most of us to be stripped of our right to bear arms.

    Might say he was mighty brave chasing the guy down to demand the gun back rather than just capping him. Then he fucks it up after the guy no longer presents a threat. Sounds fishy.
