Burglars were caught on tape while robbing a house at the corner of Kerr and Ragan Street.
Police say the burglars kicked in the back door of the house in broad daylight. What they did not realize was that someone with a camera saw them commit their crime.
Many other homes in the South Memphis neighborhood have bars and extra locks, signs that crime is a problem.
Residents in the neighborhood applauded the man who took the pictures. They hope that his courage to do something about crime in their neighborhood leads to arrests.
Residents also say that they do not have an official neighborhood watch program, so they must depend on each other to watch out for the safety of the neighborhood.
Police are asking anyone with any information about the men in the pictures to call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
