Man grabs video, records burglars fleeing Las Vegas house

November 13, 2015

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas man who armed himself with a video camera and a gun to confront four burglars fleeing a break-in at a nearby home says the incident shows the value of knowing your neighbors and asking for help.

Brett McCann said Thursday that he never hesitated to act when his neighbor called from work Tuesday to tell him someone was looting the neighbor’s house.

McCann was in the Air Force for 22 years and has registered weapons and lots of training.

He says he noticed his neighbor’s front door had been kicked in before four men ran from the home and piled into a white SUV.

The driver paused once, turning toward McCann and leaving a clear video image.

McCann says he thinks that’ll help police find the culprits.
