MEDFORD, Ore. — A homeowner at work turns on her security camera and witnesses two burglars attempting to get away with her property. But those two suspects didn’t make it far.

Lt. Mike Budreau with the Medford Police Department happened to be in the area when the homeowner called police. He got to the home right as the two burglars were stepping outside.

“You know it’s just luck, I was at the right place at the right time. I’m glad I was right there and the suspects were coming out of the house. And normally I do a lot of office work and media stuff but it’s actually nice to go back to police work and throw the hand cuffs on a bad guy,” said Lt. Budreau.

Police also found other stolen property inside a bag the two suspects had in their hands.
