BAXTER COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – While away on vacation, a Mountain Home man catches two men on camera robbing his home.

On Dec. 27, police said the homeowner received an alert from his security system. Remote access to the security cameras allowed him to discover two men inside his residence located on Westridge Road.

The homeowner called the Baxter County Sheriff's Office. Officers reached the home around 5:14 a.m. and the suspects fled the scene.

The homeowner was able to supply the police with the video footage.
