“I heard the safe, and I just came around the corner,” he told WBZ-TV. “I was like you are not taking that.”
McGuiness called police and then his two roommates. They watched what led up to the moment.
“This camera is right here, and they walk up so causally like they care going a party,” said Dan Crossman as he described the video. He installed the cameras to protect his family’s landscaping business that he runs out of the house.
The two women went to one door then another.
“She’s smiling right into the camera. I was actually blown away,” said Dan Crossman.
The two then go around the back of the house where they find a step-stool and use it to shimmy into the second floor.READ MORE: Natick elementary school custodian saves student choking in cafeteria
“Every single place they went to there was a camera,” said Grossman.
The women entered Steve Crossman’s bedroom, where they put a safe into a laundry basket and pushed it out the window. At the same moment, McGuiness came around the corner. In the video, you can see him waving his arms.
“She was like, ‘Ha, ha,'” said McGuiness of the encounter.
The safe stayed on the ground. The woman casually walked around to the front of the house, where she meets her friend and they sit in the getaway car. Thanks to the clear video, the suspects didn’t get away for long.
“The cops knew them instantly,” said Dan Crossman.
Police arrested the two women and the driver by the end of the workday, and they recovered the stolen items. Arrested were Nicole Jefferson of Plymouth and Eric Flavin and Katie O’Dea, both of Rockland. It’s unclear what charges each of them are facing.MORE NEWS: Boat, RV owners brace for higher gas prices this summer
