(WICHITA, Kan.) — An alert neighbor helped Wichita police catch two teenagers who burglarized a west side home Tuesday morning.
Investigators credited a 911 caller with keeping a close watch over her neighbor's home and providing a good description of the people who broke into the home in the 1400 block of N. Joann.
Officers went to the home and the 17 and 18 year-old burglars dashed off, WPD Lt. Doug Nolte said. Both were arrested after a brief foot chase.
"She did a wonderful job," said neighbor Dorothy Wagner of the woman who reported the crime.
Wagner has lived in the neighborhood near 13th & West for 60 years. She said it's nice to have neighbors who watch out for one another.
