A Corinth homeowner was out of town Monday afternoon when he saw two burglars on his home surveillance system.
The homeowner called a neighbor, who interrupted the burglary and saw the suspects drive away in a black GMC pickup, according to Denton police spokesman Bryan Cose.
The suspects got away with a television and power tools from the home in the 1400 block of Winston Drive in Corinth, on the border with Denton. Denton police filed a report of the incident at about 1:10 p.m., and Cose said the incident is still under investigation.
Cose said the two suspects appeared to have broken the front door.
On the surveillance footage, which was posted on Facebook late Monday, two men can be seen searching the home and later taking a dirt bike from the homeowner’s garage.
The men loaded the dirt bike onto the back of the pickup and drove away. But Cose said the dirt bike fell out of the truck bed as they fled the scene.
