BAY, Ark. – A Bay man on his first airplane ride asked the pilot to fly over his home so he could take some aerial photos.
What he saw was two men burglarizing his home.
Steven Lynn told The Jonesboro Sun that he could see the two taking items from his house to a trailer attached to a truck.
Lynn called both an uncle who lives nearby and 911.
Craighead County Sheriff's deputy Phillip Wheaton says the two unloaded the trailer and left the scene when the uncle arrived — and the airplane carrying Lynn followed them.
The two Jonesboro men were later stopped near Bay and arrested by an Arkansas State trooper and two deputies. The two identified as Roosevelt Smith III and Joseph Peel now face burglary and theft charges.
