FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) - Fishers Police issued an alert after a burglar broke into a home and smashed the family's safe.
24-Hour News 8 talked to a victim who said it was her son's scream that scared that burglar away.
Imagine leaving your home for just an hour to come back and discover its being burglarized. That's what happened to a Fishers mother who heard the suspect inside her home.
"When I drove up everything looked normal," said Jessica.
But it wasn't. Jessica said her garage door was locked going into her home in Covington Estates off 96th and Lantern.
"I went and got my key off the off the key chain; unlocked it and I came in. He took off a shoe and I heard scurrying little thumps," she said.
Those thumps turned out to be someone else in her upstairs bedroom.
"He started yelling and then I heard a really big thump and I grabbed him around the waist and I went right back out in the garage and got in the car," she said.
Jessica waited in a neighbors driveway, on the phone with 911 until police showed up.
By the time police arrived the suspect was already gone; the homeowner says he escaped from her son's second story bedroom window and jumped out to the ground below.
Police dusted for fingerprints.
"All they did was head straight for the master bedroom. They emptied out all the drawers," Jessica said.
Police also discovered the suspect attempted to open the homeowners safe before he escaped. Police said the homeowner was alert and did the right thing.
"I wasn't going to say hello, who is it, is someone there. I just grabbed my son and got out," Jessica said.
Police have detained three people in the burglary. They are only being questioned right now and have not been arrested.
Investigators recovered evidence after the crime was reported, including Jessica's jewelry in some nearby woods.
