• Watch This Family Catch Christmas Burglars, Hold Them At Gunpoint In Middle Of A TV Interview

    An Alabama family got the rare opportunity to catch the thieves who had just robbed their home, and it was all caught on live TV.

    As WBRC news cameras were rolling, interviewing the victimized family about the recent robbery, the thieves were spotted. Wyatt family members didn’t waste time, darted after the their unsuspecting robbers, and held them at gunpoint until officers from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office arrived on the scene.

    Wyatt family members were able to spot the burglars due to surveillance footage of the break-in that was captured by cameras the Wyatts placed around their front porch. The camera captured footage of a woman and two men who fit the same description as the perps.

    “They happened to drive by and we (saw) them drive by and we knew it was them and we stopped them,” Chris Wyatt said.

    Eric Paul Stillwell, 38, of Quinton, Natosha Derrick, 29, of Jasper and Elizabeth Frost, 28, of Burnwell, were charged with third degree burglary, and second degree theft of property for the robbery.

    Sarah Wyatt says she would like to have back the gifts that were stolen, but is just glad that the family is safe.

    “Sure hope so, if they don’t at least we’re all safe and in one piece and they are off the street for now,” Sarah said.
