A Brush Prairie homeowner held a trespasser on his property at gunpoint Wednesday night, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were dispatched at 6:14 p.m. to the 11700 block of Northeast 154th Street for a report of a disturbance involving weapons.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Alex Schoening said in an email that a person was trespassing in a homeowner’s yard. The resident armed himself, informing a dispatcher he’d done so.

“At some point, the 911 operator indicated that (the homeowner) had the subject at gunpoint,” Schoening said.

Deputies arrived at the home and determined that the suspect had entered an outbuilding on the property, according to the sergeant.

The suspect, who was not identified, was booked into the Clark County Jail and faces an allegation of second-degree burglary.
