Woman Catches Live Burglary on Smartphone

Glen Cove woman watching security footage on her phone sees intruder.

A Glen Cove woman tuned in to her home security system in time to see a man burglarizing her, according to Newsday.

David Bradford, 26, of Flushing, was arrested after a woman saw him on a security feed connected to her cellphone, said the report.

The Marietta Road woman called Glen Cove Police after seeing an intruder in her home on a live surveillance video on her phone Thursday, said the report.

Responding Officers Vincent Oppedisano and Eddy Linares discovered a front window open, said Newsday. The subject ran from the house as officers checked the perimeter and was reportedly caught as he tried to jump a fence.

Bradford was charged with second-degree burglary and possession of burglar's tools. He will be arraigned Friday at First District Court in Hempstead.
