What would you do if you saw your neighbor’s home destroyed by a tornado?
Like many good folks in the South, a neighbor in Kingsport, Tenn., rushed over and tried to help.
The neighbor didn’t find anyone in the wreckage, but did spot an air compressor recently stolen from his home.
Responding police found nearly $2,000 worth of goods recently stolen in the area, reports the Kingsport Times-News, including a weed trimmer and other tools.
The twister struck Sunday evening.
Monday, Jerrod L. Christian, 26, was charged with burglary, the Times-News reports.
Christian was saved from the tornado because the day before the storm struck he was safely tucked away in the Sullivan County jail for borrowing his girlfriend’s van without permission and telling an investigating police officer he was going to stomp his teeth out, stomp his mother’s teeth out and rape the police officer’s children.
“Love thy neighbor” isn’t always easy.
