    Home invasion victim steals burglars’ van : ChattahBox

    Home invasion victim steals burglars’ van

    ChattahBox) - A Bellview, Washington man Patrick Rosario, was in his basement when he heard burglars breaking in upstairs. His wife, Jamie, was at work, and his 2-year-old son, Thomas, was at day care. He peered through a one-inch opening under the door into the main living area, and saw a pair of unfamiliar jeans. He could hear the slap of electrical cords against hardwood as one of his TVs was being hoisted away. He called 911, then snuck outside.

    He saw the burglar’s van parked in front of his house with the engine running and against the advice of the 911 dispatcher, hopped in and drove it away, leaving the burglars without a getaway vehicle and no place to put his three flat-screen TVs.

    The burglars took off on foot, leaving a pile of televisions, a laptop and a jewelry box by the door. A witness who was visiting a home across the street saw them. According to the detectives’ report, “the males looked back … and appeared startled.”"I wish I could have seen the look on their faces,” Rosario told The Seattle Times.

    The suspects who were forced to escape on foot empty handed remain at large.

    Love it.
    The only thing I would have done differently was drive the van straight to the PD and ask for an escorted ride back home
