Police in the Chicago suburb of Park Ridge say they’ve arrested suspected burglars after a man identifying himself as a soldier in Iraq called them to say he’d just seen on the smartphone he’d hooked up to doorbell camera two men leave his garage with his power tools.

Police say they sent officers to the area shortly after the early Friday call and spotted two men loaded down with power tools.

Soldier Richard Wharton was viewing his doorbell camera on his smartphone when he noticed two people leave his garage with some of his power tools.

Andres Gutierrez and Brandon Shaw were arrested at around 2.30am on Friday and taken into custody.

‘He saw it and watched it and communicated great with us and called us right away,’ Tom Gadomski with Park Ridge police said.
