#Bridgeport, CT – May 9, 2013 – A burglar was chased off early Thursday by a make-believe shotgun.  An Alanson Road resident called police at 3:29 a.m.  He told Officer Marco Brito that he was watching television when he heard a loud noise in the kitchen and encountered a masked man who was holding what appeared to be a handgun. The burglar told him not to move.  The resident however stated that he was calling 911 and told the intruder that he had a shotgun.  The burglar fled. The “shotgun” was really a broom.
