Two California Robbers Caught on Own Home Video Camera

When two Sacramento men decided to rob their neighbors, they made one fatal mistake: They forgot to turn off their own home video camera.

The burglars walked across the street, entered their neighbor's home, and spent two hours collecting items from the house.

At 5:30 a.m. that morning, a neighbor woke up after hearing noises in the street. When he looked outside, he saw his two neighbors pushing garbage cans full of stolen goods across the street. The man called 911 and told police his neighbors were the burglars.

Police obtained search warrants and found the stolen items and the burglars' home video capturing their own crime on tape.

The two men were arrested, but a third suspect from the tape is still on the loose.
