So, my 14 yo, 10 yo and 7 yo went for a bike ride today (my other 10yo and 11 yo started home to play with friends) and after they had been gone about a 1/2 hour my 14 yo called dh on his phone but wanted to talk to me. He said he tried my phone 3 times yet it never rang. He told me they had stopped so my 10 yo son could tie his shoe. While waiting they saw 2 kids run out of a house in clown masks. He tells me I think I saw,a robbery. I tell them to wait and I will be right there since I didn't want them alone in case they came back. On my way I called 911. While we were waiting for the cops one of them came back but saw me and took off running again. Dh and my son went to talk to the neighbors and make sure it wasn't just kids goofing off..Turns out the people had lost the house in foreclosure but all their stuff is still in it. They hadn't been there in over a month.The police checked the doors they were all locked, but did find a kicked in basement window. One of the cops had taken off to see if he could find them. As we were talking to the other 2 they got called out because they found them. They told us to wait and they would be back. After about almost an hour they came and said they caught one of them. They know who the other one is and have been looking for him for a month in relation to a missing 15 yo girl (they know she's still alive but still cannot find her he's helping to hide her). The one they caught claims he was getting his stuff out because he used to stay there. But, if he has anything that doesn't belong to him itbwill be considered a robbery not just a b&e and trespassing. They did arrest him though hoping to find the 15 yo run away, the other buy and the missing property. The woman who used to own the house said "at least there are still some good people left in the world and some good moms who know how to raise children and teach them to do the right thing" I am so proud to be raising such great kids.
