ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Abilene residents detained two apparent burglars after finding them inside their deceased mother’s home Tuesday morning.
These residents arrived at the home on the 1300 block of Chestnut Street to do a check on the property around 9:30 a.m.
Police say once the residents entered the home, they noticed a male and female had broken-in and were still inside, so the residents detained them and called police.
The burglars freed themselves by the time police arrived, but both have since been arrested, according to the Abilene Police Department.
