A Florida woman used Internet to stop her house being burgled on Thursday, CNet reported. Monitoring a live Internet video feed of the interior of her home from office, she was shocked to see two men burglarising her residence in real time.

Jeanne Thomas, 43, was seated at her office desk when two strangers appeared in her living room. The police officials said that the intruders got into Thomas's house through a doggie door at the rear side. She immediately called 911 to report the burglary.

Police stormed her home and arrested two men, Curtis Williams, 20, and Steven Morales, 19. Two other suspects, Scott George and Jonathan Cruz, both 20, were also arrested for helping plan the burglary.

Thomas had set up the live video stream in last October after her home was looted. The video from inside Thomas's house was uploaded on the YouTube by the Boynton Beach Police Department.
