Gadsden County, Florida - May 25, 2011 -

Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office deputies respond to Friday Road last night when a resident fires a shot at burglars. The resident recently had ongoing problems with theft around his
property when he observed a vehicle drive behind his residence yesterday evening. The armed
resident, along with another subject, followed the vehicle onto their property on foot and
confronted two black males driving a white Ford SUV on their property.

A warning shot was fired at the burglars who then fled with one fleeing on foot and the other
attempting to flee in the white SUV. The subject who fled on foot attempted to enter the
residence but was confronted by the armed resident. The second subject, who attempted to flee in
the vehicle, got stuck next to the residence in which he then fled on foot.
Calvin Wilson, a 38 year old black male from Quincy, FL, who was confronted by an armed
resident and later arrested by Gadsden County deputies. Clifford Edward Allen, a 41 year old
black male also from Quincy, FL, was later arrested after he returned to area on foot. Deputies
were alerted to Allen’s presence based on his soiled clothing, torn shirt and fatigue. Deputies
gave Allen verbal commands detaining him for further investigation. Allen then made a
spontaneous and unsolicited statement that the returned to the resident because he did something
wrong.

No one was injured and the arrestees are charged with Burglary of an Occupied Dwelling and Trespass, respectively.
