Cedar Rapids woman calls police with burglars inside her home

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Three people face burglary charges after a Cedar Rapids woman caught them in the act at her home.

Officials say 19-year-old Cortez Conway, 19-year-old Andre Kase, and a 17-year-old boy were arrested at a home on Devonshire Drive NE.

The homeowner says she called police Wednesday around noon after a person walked into her home. She recognized the person, talked with him and he left. She called 911, but that person was gone when police arrived.

Just before 1:00 p.m., the woman spotted three people in her basement taking electronic items. She called police again, and this time the people were still there when police arrived. 

Officials say the homeowner did the right thing by calling police instead of confronting people in her home. Police recommend homeowners keep their doors locked at all times to prevent this style of robbery.
