Hawk Point, MO (KSDK) - A couple of would-be burglars are behind bars because of neighbors who went to great lengths to protect their turf in Hawk Point, Missouri.

The two suspects from Illinois picked the wrong neighborhood to try to rip off. Neighbors are still on edge, but they helped capture the suspects, with one woman briefly holding a burglar at gunpoint.
