Ways was pulling into his driveway on Thursday night when he saw all the lights were switched on in his house. He stayed outside and fetched the footage from his camera through the app, the report said.

"In the footage, I saw a woman poking her head in my door saying, 'Hello, hello?' ... I immediately called the police," Ways said.

"When police responded, the suspect was about to leave with property from the home," a policeman was quoted as saying.
