TACOMA, Washington– A 78-year-old woman in Tacoma, Washington, was not about to stand by and watch people steal from her inside her own home.

Guelda Messina told KIRO-TV that she walked out of her bedroom and she saw them: three people, one with a crowbar. “All I knew was they were in my house and they needed to get out. Period,” she said.

Security cameras captured the suspects inside the house. Messina yelled at them, “Get the hell out of here!” And, they did.

They got away with some money and earrings.
