Moving into trouble.

After his mobile home was robbed twice, a Fairbanks, Alaska, man installed video surveillance equipment and bought a gun. The unidentified man had bought the property just a few months earlier.

Not long after the gun purchase, two robbers entered the man's mobile home, brandishing guns and demanding money. After the strangers took $50 and a cell phone, they told the man to open the mobile home's safe. The safe, however, didn't contain valuables. When the armed robbers fled the premises, the victim grabbed his own gun, followed them outside, and shot them in the legs. Both are expected to live.

Detective Dave Elzey said that the trailer owner did not appear to be a drug dealer or to own much in the way of valuables, making police believe that the robbers "picked the trailer at random or picked it by mistake," reported the Associated Press.
