A homeowner, having been burglarized before, set up a web-enabled camera to capture the miscreants in the act should they ever return. When they did, she was able to watch online from work, call 911 and give the dispatcher a play-by-play report of the burglars’ activity . . .
You can hear in her voice how traumatic it was to watch the two wander through her home among her docile pets. The four responding officers appear to have arrived relatively quickly. But the two suspects – one armed with a tire iron – had plenty of time to invade her home and have the run of the place looking for loot.
Had she been home at the time of the break-in, the cops might have been called on to administer first aid for someone with blunt force trauma. Or call the morgue. Here’s hoping she secures that dog door. And buys herself a gun to protect herself and her family.
