OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An Omaha woman says she used a handgun to keep a burglar under control until police arrived.

The Omaha World Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1pK6CS8 ) 52-year-old Barbara Haley awoke early Tuesday to a loud noise. She says she noticed hands coming out of her bedroom closet and grabbed a gun.

The newspaper reports Haley threatened the intruder to stay in the closet or she would shoot. She called 911.

Police say 24-year-old Jody Kudlacz was arrested and charged with one felony count of burglary. Court records do not list an attorney.

Haley says her husband gave her a quick lesson on how to use the gun before he went out of town. Officer Kevin Wiese, a police spokesman, says residents should be trained on how to properly use firearms.
