“I saw a commotion at the bottom of my road so I asked what was going on.
“It was like an angry mob. Everyone was in shock, there was quite a lot of police there.
“The woman who lives in the house screamed and a lot of the neighbours were outside.
Shardy arrived at the scene at 2pm and left at 2.30pm but the alleged burglars were stuck there for two hours before being arrested.
Shardy said: “They must have been very stupid indeed. Some people just have no respect for other people’s stuff.
“It’s ridiculous if you ask me.
“If it happened to me, I wouldn’t call the police I would just deal with it.
“I bet they didn’t expect that to happen.”

Mr Rehman said the suspected criminals had been on the roof of the house for two hours after being spotted by locals.
