A quick-thinking, gun-toting homeowner ran two would-be burglars out of his house in Mt. Olivet according to state police.

Investigators say a man came home to find a strange car parked in his driveway,so he blocked it in, took the keys, and went inside to find two men in his home.

Troopers say one of the suspects pulled a gun on the homeowner who, in turn, pulled a gun on the suspects who dropped their weapons and ran off.

Police say Robert Harris of Newport and Matthew Stacey of Covington were arrested in neighboring Harrison County.

They say both men had narcotics on them, so they'll face drug and burglary charges.
