Burglars Try Hitting Same House Two Days in a Row, Find Armed Cop Waiting

By: Robert Davis

Keith (43) and Kellie (30) Durham broke into an Indianapolis home with a “For Sale” sign in the front yard, found no one inside, and burgled it. The next morning, they broke in again. Only this time, they found the homeowner’s son, a police officer, staring them down with a gun.

After the initial incident, the homeowner asked her son to stay the night at the empty house, just in case. The son parked his car across the street, so it looked as if no one was home.

“[The Durhams] parked both of their cars in the driveway, and they were in the house. They kicked in the same door they kicked in the night before and got in there,” a neighbor told WishTV.

The son handcuffed the Durhams and held them at gunpoint until on-duty police arrived to arrest them.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers arrested the Durhams for possession of a controlled substance, theft, and burglary, WTHR.com reported.
