A Washington state farmer reportedly stopped a pair of suspected thieves in their tracks when he held them at gunpoint on his property until deputies arrived.

"We have many responsible gun owners here in Grant County and if they are outside protecting their property they can certainly hold someone at gunpoint and then call 911 to have us come and investigate and find out what those people are doing there," Grant County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Kyle Foreman told local outlet KPQ News.

The sheriff’s office said deputies were called to a farm in Quincy last Saturday at about 7 p.m. over reports of two burglary suspects.
