BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) - A man in Washington state made sure a
pair of burglars didn't get away with his three flat-screen
televisions - he moved their getaway car.
Patrick Rosario was in the basement of his Bellevue home on
Tuesday when he heard the burglars upstairs.
The Seattle Times says the 32-year-old Rosario, who had been
laid off from his job as a Washington Mutual manager, called 911
while he sneaked out of the house.
He saw a white van sitting in front of his house with the motor
running and the keys in the ignition, and he got in and drove it to
a friend's house.
Police say the burglars left the televisions, a laptop computer
and a jewelry box by the door and took off on foot.
The sheriff's office said no arrests had been made.
