ALTA — A woman has been arrested on multiple charges after allegedly walking into a couple’s unlocked home and pulling a gun on them, then becoming belligerent and combative when they forced her out.

At around 11 PM on Friday, October 4, 31-year-old Megan Gantz had been going up and down Culberson Road when she found the couple’s front door unlocked, went inside, and laid down on the living room floor.

All this in full view of the couple who lived at the house, and had been sitting in the living room when she walked in.

The man somehow got her out of the house, but she came back inside and pulled a stolen handgun from her jacket pocket. Luckily, the man was able to get it away from her and force her back outside.

At one point, Gantz grabbed the woman by the throat and started choking her, but she was able to get away.

Once Gantz was locked outside, she began circling the house, banging on all the doors and windows and threatening to kill the couple.

Deputies arrived soon thereafter. During her arrest, Gantz kept reaching for the deputy’s belt. Once she was cuffed, she kept trying to pull away.

Nonetheless, she was ultimately booked at the Auburn County Jail on suspicion of burglary, criminal threats, brandishing a firearm, being armed with a firearm in the commission of a felony, possession of stolen property, battery likely to cause great bodily injury, and resisting arrest.
