Burlingame Fights Off Home Invasion

Robber No Match For Putnam County Senior


Don't mess with Sherman Burlingame.Sherman Burlingame

A home invasion robber learned that the hard way, February 16th, 2012.

The Poca senior citizen was enjoying a quiet Thursday afternoon watching TV in his basement. 

Then everything changed.

A man broke into Burlingame's home, shoved him to the floor, and demanded that he opened the safe. Burlingame didn't know the combination. But he did know that the burglar did not have a weapon, so, despite recovering from a recent hernia surgery, Burlingame fought off the burglar, who went out the door and drove away in a white minivan.

Burlingame says his granddaughter has wanted a German Shepard. She will soon get her wish.

If you know anything about the thug that attacked Burlingame, you are urged to immediately telephone the Putnam County Sheriff's Department during business hours at 304-586-0256. Putnam Dispatch can be reached anytime at 304-586-0273.
