(Before It's News)

On Friday, 3 February, 2017, 66-year-old Billy Harrell was being robbed in the parking lot of the restaurant he manages, the Ole Times Country Buffet.  He was closing for the night. It was about 9:30 p.m. in Dublin, Georgia.  Holding a gun to his head, the two robbers forced him into his SUV. They took a gun from the vehicle and other items. From idahostatesman.com:

The robber grabbed a pistol and some other items from the vehicle and started to leave.

When he turned back around with his gun pointed, Harrell fired a shot from another weapon he had concealed in the car, hitting 21-year-old Devin Wilbert.

Police were able to arrest both suspects.  As part of the investigation, Harrel’s guns were seized and are being held as evidence. The sheriff of Telfair County, where Harrel lives, applauded his crime fighting efforts. At this point Harrels name was not yet published.  From facebook.com:

I am extremely grateful that this fellow Telfair Countian was not killed or seriously injured during this violent encounter, and I commend him for having his own personal protection, and for being prepared to use it,

 The sheriff did not stop there. Sheriff Steverson showns gratitude to the armed citizen. He commends him for his actions,  he then says he will find a way to make sure that Harrel is not left disarmed, even if he has to give Harrel one of his own weapons to do so.

As Sheriff of Telfair County, I am sworn to serve and protect our citizens, and I can assure you that after today, this “Telfair County Citizen” will again have a weapon and be fully equipped to defend himself if need be, even If I have to give him one of my own!

Sheriff Chris Steverson

Sheriff Steverson did not have to furnish Harrel a weapon for long.  A local gun shop, CL Defense LLC,  saw both a need, and an opportunity. They gave Harrel a new .38 Smith & Wesson.
