A burglar had partially emptied William Allens' Fort
Lauderdale, Fla., home and driven away with one load of loot when
Allen's daughter discovered the burglary. Police investigated and
said the burglar would probably be back to finish cleaning out the
place but added that they couldn't leave a stake-out team. So
Allen's grandson, Bill Kelley, and a family friend, Arthur Hacker,
armed themselves and waited for the criminal to return. Their
patience was rewarded in just two hours as the housebreaker strolled
in. They captured him and held him for police.
