SCRIPPS RANCH, Calif. (KGTV) - A Scripps Ranch couple watched a break-in at their home, live on a video feed this week; returning from vacation to find,

"This is a mess," Bob Arban said.

Arban and Andrea Brundage were sifting through the mess the burglars left.

"I don't know what they're trying to find but they were looking pretty hard," Arban said.

But they received that phone alert. They watched the burglary in progress on the phone, called 9-1-1 and a neighbor.

"He came over and confronted them at the side gate. They got scared and ran back out of the house and jumped the fence and ran down the street," Arban said.

The men got away in a waiting car but left behind some important clues: Faces captured on surveillance video. They also stole one of the cameras.

"They ran out of time. Once they figured out they were being surveilled, they beat feet," Brundage said. "Had they not they would have been caught. You called 911 and within two minutes police showed up." 

It's over now but they feel violated.

"No, it's a bad feeling when somebody's been in your house," Arban said.

San Diego Police have yet to make any arrests.
