Cathy Kouba’s home security system alarm jolted her awake Thursday night. She said she realized someone was trying to kick in her back door.

“I have a daughter that’s handicapped and she was asleep on the bottom floor,” Kouba said. “And so for the fear of her being hurt, motherly instincts kick in and, you know, I worked hard for what I’ve got. And you’re not going to come and take it away from me.”
