HOUSTON – Harris County deputies are trying to catch a couple of heartless hombres who broke into a Forsythe Lane house overnight. That’s just south of Spring.

Deputies say the owner of the house is hard of hearing and didn’t know the dastardly duo kicked in his back door as he slept upstairs.

The bumbling bad guys ended up dropping a flat screen TV and some wrapped gifts on their way out of the gate.

A neighbor spotted them. He tried talking with them, but they jumped in their car and tried to run him over.

He was packing heat, though, and fired off two rounds into the car as the fleeing felons drove off into the night.

Deputies are checking local hospitals in case one of these bad Santas shows up wearing a full metal jacket.
