PORT ANGELES — A Port Angeles man police said tried to break into the same house at least twice in two days was in the Clallam County jail Tuesday after one of the people living in the home kept the man at bay with a shotgun until police arrived.

Richard Allen Smith, 37, was booked into the Clallam County jail early Tuesday morning for investigation of two counts of residential burglary, said Port Angeles Deputy Police Chief Brian Smith, who is no relation.
