Seattle Photographer Catches Burglars in His House, Rolls Camera

Joe Orsillo, a news photographer for Seattle CBS affiliate KIRO, caught two men camping out in a house he owns Friday. He blocked one guy in. The other escaped. Then he rolled tape.

“Why are you inside my house? Why are you inside my house?” Orsillo asked the one of the men after finding him in his childhood bedroom.

“I’m probably not going to have an answer you’ll like,” said the suspect.

Orsillo wasn’t just mad the men trashed his house. He said it took the cops over 20 minutes to help him out.

“I was begging, I have this guy in my house,” said Orsillo. “I don’t know if he has a weapon or not. I’ve got the door blocked. I don’t know what he’s going to do. He’s high on coke or whatever.”
