She caught the man in the act of robbing her home of its valuables and yelled: 'Stop! Acts 2:38!'
("Repent and be Baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ , so that your sins may be forgiven.")

As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar: 'Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you.'
'Scripture?' replied the burglar... 'She said she had an ax and two 38s!'
