WATCH: 81-Year-Old Jewelry Store Owner Chuck Lire Fights Off Thieves
These thieves got a little more of a fight than they bargained for when they tried a midday smash-and-grab at a Sherman Oaks, California, jewelry store. The store's 81-year-old owner, Chuck Lire, sprang
into action when one of the men suddenly smashed a display case with a hammer. Then, a second man ran in, and had to deal with Chuck! After some shoving, the men quickly ran out the door, making off with a few watches. Lire said fear didn't go through his mind. "I didn't even think about it," he said.
