Guy in Plane Spots His House Being Burglarized From Above

An Arkansas man named Steven Lynn, who wanted nothing more than to take aerial photos of his house, got a lot more than he bargained for: he witnessed two guys smack dab in the middle of robbing it. "I looked down, and sure enough, there was a truck hooked onto a trailer, and guys were loading stuff up," Lynn said. "It didn't seem to faze them that we were buzzing over in an airplane; we got down pretty low." After Lynn called 911, he and the pilot tracked the burglars from above, giving directions to the sheriff's office as they followed the guys on the ground. While most everything was returned, Lynn's still missing a rifle worth $1,200. The burglars face theft charges.
