Grady County man holds intruder at gunpoint until officers arrive

An intruder was arrested after a Grady County homeowner held him at gunpoint until deputies arrived. Deputies arrested Travis Thrash, 28, on complaints of burglary and public intoxication. Grady County Sheriff Jim Weir said Thrash is lucky he didn’t get shot. “He kicked the front door of the residence and made it all the way it to the hallway to the bedroom,” Weir said. The homeowner, a military veteran, pulled out a gun and protected his wife and children. He can be heard in his 911 call telling the suspect to get on the ground. Weir said Thrash admitted to being under the influence of drugs. Once in custody, Thrash acted strangely, saying he was being chased by several people, Weird said. A second neighbor had also called police, saying Thrash had tried to get into her house minutes before. Thrash has other felony arrests and had a deferred sentence out of Oklahoma County on drug charges just last month.
