Arkansas Man Sees His House Being Robbed From a Plane

Talk about being caught in the act.

Steven Lynn from Bay, Arkansas was on a private plane — his first plane ride ever — and asked the pilot to fly over his house so he could take some aerial photographs. But instead of generic shots of his home, he snapped something far more alarming: two men taking items out of the house and loading them onto a trailer.

In other words, Lynn was being robbed.

He called a nearby uncle and then 911. When the uncle showed up, the men put everything back where they found it and fled, with the plane in hot pursuit.

Roosevelt Smith III and Joseph Peel, both of Jonesboro, Arkansas, were eventually arrested and now face charges of burglary and theft.
