A Bellview, Washington guy was in his basement when he heard burglars break in upstairs. He called 911, then sneaked outside. He saw the burglar's van parked in front of his house with the engine running, so he hopped in and drove it away, leaving the burglars without a getaway vehicle.
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.
