      A thief tries to steal from a Pavo man while he was sleeping over the weekend but finds himself staring down the barrel of a shotgun.

      41-year-old Larry Hood was arrested and charged with theft by taking. Waylon Griner was sleeping Sunday morning when he heard the door bell ring.

      When Griner looked outside, he saw Hood trying to load a lawn mower into his SUV. That's when Griner held him with a shotgun until a Colquitt County sheriff's deputy arrived.

      Hood has been arrested before for a series of burglaries in Colquitt County.
