Norfolk, MA (WCVB/CNN) - Police in Massachusetts say a teen girl's quick thinking helped them catch two burglars.
The girl was hiding in the basement of her home, desperately calling 911 for help.
"They're in my house," she told the 911 dispatcher.
Police got to the burglary quickly because an officer happened to be working a detail in the area. He heard the call on his radio, jumped in his car, and drove two miles up the road.
The officers blocked the Cadillac parked in the driveway and found the suspects behind the house.
The officer arrested Chelsea Smith and Michael Couto and in their SUV found pillowcases they say were stuffed with jewelry from two other robberies Tuesday in the back, a television, and an X-Box.
Police credit the brave 16-year-old, home sick from school, for halting a run and potentially unraveling other unsolved break-ins in the suburbs.
Police say Couto and Smith are facing multiple felony charges, including breaking and entering, larceny and malicious destruction.
