Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace and his team of deputies were able to capture a burglary suspect in the act.
The drama unfolded just after 4 p.m. Wednesday on U.S. Highway 61 North at Blake Drive. The suspect knocked on the door of a house where two teenagers were lodged. When they answered the door, the suspect barged into the house causing the teenagers to flee to a neighbor’s house.
The neighbors sheltered the teens and called 911. Several neighborhood security cameras captured the event and neighbors even took pictures of the suspect.
Sheriff Pace describes the scene to the Vicksburg Daily News reporter Tommy Parker in this video:
