    Manager Shoots Westhampton Burglary Suspect
    Evan Kammer 04/02/2007 1:30 pm

    An alleged burglar was rushed to the hospital Sunday morning after he was shot in the groin by the manager of a Westhampton junkyard, according to Southampton Town police.



    Police were called to J&V Auto Salvage, located on 104 South Country Rd., on a report of several suspects trespassing on the property. When cops arrived at the scene, they heard a gunshot from inside the facility. Police entered the fenced yard area to find Albinas Augulis, 55, with a gunshot wound to the groin.



    The manager, whose name is not being released, told police that he confronted Augulis with a shotgun and ordered him to the ground. He fired the weapon after Augulis continued to approach him.



    Augulis was treated at the scene and then taken to University Hospital at Stony Brook for emergency surgery. He is expected to survive.



    Police searched the area with the help of the K-9 unit and helicopters, but no other subjects were found.



    There had been several thefts at J&V recently, but it is unknown if this incident is related. A J&V employee tells the Press that this was the first time anyone had been confronted.



    Augulis was released on an appearance ticket at the hospital for charges of criminal trespass and possession of burglar’s tools.



    The Southampton Town Police Department is still investigating, but as of now the manager has not been charged.

    Unfortunately I wont be suprised if they announce they are charging the business owner.

    Well, for someone to be stealing used shitty parts from a salvage yard they can't be very smart. :rofl:

    I also read some statistics that said about 65% of crimes committed with firearms aren't even loaded. :eek3: But, that's not a very good statistic when someone is racking a 12 guage in front of you. :o
