Authorities say a woman checking her video surveillance system from the Internet while she was at work caught four people robbing her house.

Police say Jeanne Thomas logged on to the $250 Wilife system Wednesday morning and saw a person standing in her house. She quickly called 911. While talking to the operator, Thomas saw several other people. She pleaded with the dispatcher to send police, and 18 officers arrived and surrounded the house several minutes later.

Officers arrested Curtis Williams, Scott George, Jonathan Cruz, all 20, and 19-year-old Steven Morales. They were charged with burglary and attempted grand theft.

Thomas said she had known Cruz, a neighbor, since he was 8 years old.
