That's good news, I happen to have two lists:
His occupation (I guess that it will be 'criminal' but anyway): thats one yes :o)

Other? there is another occupation, but it doesn't really come on that list, though its part transportation I suppose, and may involve computers and technology

The crime:
assault? yes!
destroying property? vandalism? arson? closest to these

Did he commit a crime? he committed a lot of small crimes several times? yes is this the wrong thing? yes

The other people involved:
how many males: 1? 2? 3? ... how many females: 1? 2? 3? 1 male, 1 female - there are some other people in the story, but nothing major

Their relation to him: family? friends? colleagues? strangers? none of these exactly

Are their occupations relevant? yes!

It means he is human, adult and male. A lot of puzzles try to confuse by including a character who is not really human so those are the first three questions always asked-they've kind of been abbreviated. I've never been sure how someone described as "he" could not be male though...

Why did he change his mind:
For some religious reason? spiritual reason? some reason in his private life? he was getting old? the police was on his tracks? he was caught?
Did particular anything happen on this 'one day'? Did he know in advance that he would stop? did he know the day in advance?
Did he have financial gain in committing those crimes? or did he do this for fun?

Tobasi (Tobasi)

Why did he change his mind:
For some religious reason? spiritual reason? some reason in his private life? he was getting old? the police was on his tracks? he was caught? sorry I think I mislead you slightly, he didn't exactly change his mind, he committed some crimes, and then tried to do the right thing at another time

Did particular anything happen on this 'one day'? yes Did he know in advance that he would stop? probably not did he know the day in advance? yes
Did he have financial gain in committing those crimes? or did he do this for fun? I suppose fun is closest, though I wouldn't really call committing assault etc fun as such :o)

Does he sell guard dogs? other security equipment?
Does he attack people to make them buy his equipment?
Why did the police not enter into his residence: because of the guard dogs? they didn't think the criminal was inside? they had no justification to do so?
Was there any relevant lawsuit in the courthouse? related to his crimes?
Was he in the courthouse with dogs?

Why did the criminal enter the courthouse:
He was asked to? he wanted to meet someone? he needed some information? by accident?

See the dogs? probably have contact with them (say the dogs were attacking)? no see the criminal? don't think so talk to the criminal? possibly hear anything else relevant? no see anything else relevant? no did they try to enter? NO!

Why did the criminal enter the courthouse:
He was asked to? yes! he wanted to meet someone? I suppose so he needed some information? by accident? no

Did the police enter the courthouse to get him? or were they there before him? this one

Did the criminal keep the guard dogs to prevent others from coming into his residence? so that nobody could see the crimes he was preparing?
Is there more about the guard dogs to be found out?
Part of his crimes was to destroy property would it help to find out what kind of property it was? objects?
Would it help to find out more about his victims? did he choose them carefully?
On the "one day" he was in the courthouse? and he was more or less forced to change his customs since he was arrested?
Is the person who asked him to come to the courthouse relevant? a policeman? someone working at the courthouse? a criminal?
Is this story from your own imagination? based on a book? a film? a true story? of which you heard in the media?

So one of the policemen asked him to come to the courthouse? the woman? the man? Did he or she do this by phone? personally? written?
Did the criminal fear to be arrested in the courthouse?
I still haven't found out exactly the crime: did he use any tools or weapons for preparing or committing the crimes? his bare hands? a particular skill? a particular knowledge?

Did the criminal fear to be arrested in the courthouse? apparently not!!

I still haven't found out exactly the crime: did he use any tools or weapons for preparing or committing the crimes? his bare hands? a particular skill? a particular knowledge? possibly - the crimes aren't really the focus here apart from the fact they weren't serious crimes, the important part is that the police wanted to arrest him but...

So the policewoman wrote something asking him to come to the courthouse? or did someone do it for her?
Was the written document a letter? an e-mail? a note? Did the policewoman sign with her name and title? did she fool the criminal in any way?

Was the written document a letter? this I guess, but may be misleading you - think more about courts and what they may send out an e-mail? a note? Did the policewoman sign with her name and title? the woman probably did did she fool the criminal in any way? no

Was the written document a summons? Was anything about his crimes mentioned in this document?
The woman who sent it was the main female person?
Was she a lawyer? judge? prosecutor? someone from administration?
Did she now about the crimes?
Was the criminal invited to attend a lawsuit? was he asked to be on the jury? or did the woman ask him to come to see her? someone else?
Was the second male (not the criminal) a policeman?

Apparently it was difficult to get the criminal?
So the police asked a woman working at a courthouse for help?
She asked him to participate at the jury of a lawsuit?
He agreed to come? he had no justification not to come?
And at the courthouse the police was waiting for him?
If this is more or less correct the main point to find out is why the police didn't enter into his residence, isn't it?
Was there some law keeping them from entering? Is the place where the residence was relevant? say in another country? or did the police fear to enter for some reason?

Apparently it was difficult to get the criminal? it was!
So the police asked a woman working at a courthouse for help? hmm sort of, the jury summon was genuine, but...
She asked him to participate at the jury of a lawsuit? she did
He agreed to come? he did! he had no justification not to come? apparently he didn't even try to think of one
And at the courthouse the police was waiting for him? they were!

If this is more or less correct the main point to find out is why the police didn't enter into his residence, isn't it? yes, but not complicated, if you found out his proper job it might help
Was there some law keeping them from entering? no Is the place where the residence was relevant? possibly, some laws might limit this happening in some places say in another country? again possibly or did the police fear to enter for some reason? well yes

just a little recap to try to find his job - its a place where he lives and works from with lots of outside space and guard dogs, and involve transport and machinery

So the job to be found out is as such not related to crimes, right?
Is he producing something? objects? something non-palpable?
Is he providing a service?
Has he customers? would it help to find out their jobs?
Is he the customer of someone? would it help to find out the job of this someone?
The transport involved: by car? by train? by plane? by ship?
The outside space: grassland? forest? mountains? fields? watercourses? desert?
Is his job well payed? respectable?
Does it require education? university studies? apprenticeship? training on the job?

is the security to protect from the law? possibly in part - you also need to know more about the security at his place or from other criminals? possibly media? unlikely is his occupation there criminal? or straight? straight
are they protecting innovations? monetary value? human value? hmm none of these really, there will probably be some monetary value

Tobasi (Tobasi)

Is he providing a service? yes
Has he customers? yes would it help to find out their jobs? no
Is he the customer of someone? yes would it help to find out the job of this someone? no
The transport involved: by car? cars would probably be involved, but they "by" bit is misleading by train? by plane? by ship?
The outside space: grassland? forest? mountains? fields? watercourses? desert? none of these
Is his job well payed? I have no idea, not great probably respectable? well its legal and it provides a service, but I don't imagine that many people would want to do it
Does it require education? university studies? apprenticeship? training on the job? probably this one - I don't really know much about this job, in movies etc its always rough kind of place and people, but I expect there are plenty of lovely ones around as well.. maybe...

So we have heard of this job rather in films and books than in real life? are we likely to have heard of this job in a particular film genre?
Do you find people doing this job in every country? only in developed countries?
Is the climate relevant? the vegetation? the soil?
So some monetary value is guarded with the dogs? objects? something immaterial?
Do cars come to this strange place? to transport people? animals? objects? information?

Is the climate relevant? the vegetation? the soil? no
So some monetary value is guarded with the dogs? objects? objects something immaterial?
Do cars come to this strange place? yes! to transport people? animals? objects? information? NO!

wheels?
rails?

Are the valuable objects kept in this place made of metal? mainly this! and I wouldn't say they were particularly valuable, they just have some monetary value - you already know the objects, you just haven't classified them as such wood? paper? cardboard? glass? stone? concrete? tissue? organic material? earth? clay? plastic? rubber?
Are they longer than 1 mm? 1 cm? 10 cm? 1 m? 10 m 100 m? 1 km? well I suppose some of the bits could be anything from 1mm up to a few meters in general

So the objects he kept were cars, correct?
Did he repair them? do any other work on them? did he stock them? buy them? sell them? rent them?
Were the cars new? used? junk?
Any particular type of cars? any particular brand? did the cars have anything in common?
Is the number of cars in the place relevant? more than 2? 10? 100? 1000? 10000?
Was his work rather handcraft? administrative?
I still don't understand why the police couldn't get him at his residence: They couldn't find him? he was hiding? the police feared his arm? he was in a better position than the police because he knew the place?

his work place/job is in a junk yard, everything else is irrel

I still don't understand why the police couldn't get him at his residence: They couldn't find him? no, they knew where he was he was hiding? well he was sort of hiding in his junk yard the police feared his arm? sort of he was in a better position than the police because he knew the place? I suppose so, and I think you're close enough with all this, basically the news story said that he ran and hid in his junk yard, with all his guns etc., and the police didn't feel his crimes warranted going in there and possibly getting into a whole shoot out with him

I think everythings close enough for a

************SPOILER*************

In Fredericksburg, Texas, there is a local ne'er-do-well. His criminal acts include such gems as offering to send a bomb to the local District Attorney, and assaulting the girl's basketball coach during an argument about his daughter's game. Mostly, though, he upsets the local cops by committing some minor infraction, and then racing home to his junkyard (a genuine junkyard), locking the gates and refusing to come out and be arrested. In order to avoid a Waco-type standoff, they mostly just let him stay inside. One day, however, a worker at the courthouse noticed that this guy's name came up on the list to be sent a summons for jury duty. She mentioned to the Sheriff that she out to just throw it away, right? And the Sheriff told her to send it anyway. Lo and behold, on the day the jury convened, who should show up but our hero, who was promptly arrested and hauled off to jail. Guess you can't let a little fear of arrest stop you from performing your patriotic duties.
