Two burglars were caught in the act after a 9-year-old boy who was left home alone on Thanksgiving break heard the men breaking in Monday and called 911.
The boy said his father was at work and his mother at the store when the men broke into the house, near Interstate 20 and Hemphill Street, about 10:30 a.m.
The boy said he was watching cartoons in his bedroom when he first heard banging noises. He said that at first he dismissed the sounds as a "cat or something."
But when the banging got louder and was soon followed by the sound of breaking glass, the boy said he got scared, locked his bedroom door and called 911. He said he told dispatchers that he’d heard banging.
"I think someone is in the house," he said he told dispatchers.
