A Texas father and daughter chased down a group of burglars last week after they discovered them trying to leaving their home.
The Houston homeowner, a plastic surgeon, was returning from a business trip when he spotted three crooks pulling out his driveway. But instead of calling the police to report the burglary, he and his daughter got in their own vehicle and chased the suspects down, USA Today reports.
As the daughter drove, the father recorded the incident with his cellphone. The duo pursued the crooks for several miles until the suspects turned their truck around and smashed into the victim’s car.
The burglars were hurled into a ditch and responding police managed to capture and arrest two of them, but the third suspect fled.
The daughter suffered whiplash from the accident and was transported to an area hospital, but was later released. The doctor escaped with no injuries.
The father said there have been several burglaries in their neighborhood and he wasn’t about to let the bad guys get away with another one.
“I’m tired of these people taking advantage of us,” he said. “We’re not going to tolerate it anymore in our neighborhood.”
