Golden Gate man holds burglar at gunpoint until deputies arrive

 

Robert Dixon woke up early Wednesday morning to the sound of his house’s alarm going off.

His wife got out of bed and crept into the living room, where she saw a stranger by the sliding glass door. She ran and grabbed a gun, which she handed to her husband. He pointed it at the intruder and waited for deputies to arrive.

“Basically he was scared to death when he had a gun pointed at him,” said Dixon, who lives on Green Boulevard in Golden Gate. “Once he saw the gun, he was a deer in headlights. He wasn’t going to do anything.”

The suspect, later identified as 27-year-old Kenneth Paul, told deputies he broke into the home because he needed money. Reports say Paul, who now faces charges of burglary and petty theft, was found with a flashlight and jacket stolen from Dixon’s truck outside the home.

Dixon said he had children in the home, including some from his wife’s family, who were in town visiting.

“I was more worried for the children,” he said. “Family is what’s important.”

About six years ago, Dixon said someone knocked on his door at another home in the Golden Gate area. When he answered the door, one guy jumped him and another came at him with a gun. Now, he doesn’t answer the door at night without carrying his weapon, just in case.

“This isn’t the crime-free Naples that people think it is,” Dixon said. “You’ve got to be worried about what’s out there. There’s too many wackos out there.”
