I don’t know if you’d ever had to experience getting your house broken into, and how could that actually end up, to me it all sounds terrifying.
You never know what could go wrong.
In this case a homeowner Damien Girard saw the whole thing happening. While the robbers where breaking and entering, one of them broke a glass which activated the home surveillance system and sent an alert to Girard’s work computer. He works 5 minutes away from his home and he was able to watch everything as it was happening.
He called the police describing the situation saying that someone was robbing his house, and that he was on his way there, the police responded immediately. Thanks to the video, the police got the key piece of evidence to track them down.
