SHELBY, N.C. —
A 71-year-old Shelby woman said being afraid never entered her mind when she found a burglar sleeping in her spare bedroom.
Early Sunday morning, Nellie Wylie was alerted when she heard snoring coming from her second bedroom.
She quickly called her neighbor for help and after searching the room, she said they found someone lying partially under the bed.
"I said if anybody's in there you better come out now before I shoot," Wylie said.
Wylie said the suspect screamed “Don’t hurt me," and that's when she called police.
Wylie believes the suspect let the dog out and then pried open her rear window. Police arrested Matthew Gregg on burglary charges. He remains behind bars at the Cleveland County Detention Center.
