Garden hose prevents home intruder

"...Brian Whitlock was using a garden hose to water his lawn on Tuesday night around 11 p.m. That's when a man, dressed from head to toe in black, scaled his back wall and claimed to be a police officer. Police allege the criminal was hoping to rob Whitlock's home. However, the Las Vegas homeowner had a different plan in mind. A steady rush of water isn't exactly a proven defense mechanism. In Whitlock's case, it worked to prevent the stranger from getting what he wanted."

1. A house or other inanimate object cannot be "robbed." Only a human can be robbed. A house can be burgled, or thefted.
2. Apparently some goblins don't like getting wet (cat burglars?). For most situations a "water" gun is not the weapon of choice.

LOL!
Perhaps not, but a water cannon is often an effective weapon.

Surprised the home owner was not also cited for illegal watering.
