Since the Gnome didn't kill him, she went back with a rolling-pin

: "BATTLING gran Jean Collop nabbed a burglar — by laying him out with a garden gnome.
Widow Jean, 69, woke at 5am to find an intruder clambering on her roof.
She spotted him heading for a window and decided on a spot of elf defence.
Jean yelled at the man, then picked up a gnome and hurled it at him.
It bounced off his head, leaving him lying dazed on the roof.
Jean dashed to fetch her rolling pin and a camera — then took flash photos of the burglar as neighbours called the police."
