Don’t mess with the Chumstick!
Last weekend a couple of the dumber inhabitants of Western Washington came to visit our sleepy berg.
These hoodlums attempted an armed home invasion on the Chumstick Highway north of Leavenworth and got an education about rural living.
The homeowner grabbed one of the robber’s pistol and shot him. Both robbers fled and gave themselves up to local sheriff’s deputies.

In my opinion, both robbers are lucky to be alive. The Chumstick neighborhood is typical of rural Eastern Washington. The number of firearms – shotguns, pistols, and hunting rifles, per capita is probably fairly high. If you try and break in to a home here, plan on gettting shot or shot at.
