In 2015, 12-year-old Taylor Blanton was waiting for her mother to come home from work when she spotted a strange man loitering around her house.
Taylor was alone and scared as the man tried to break in through the front door. But the pre-teen kept her wits about her as the man attempted to break in via the garage and then knocked on the front door, hiding herself among the furniture and calling 911.
She took photos and videos of the burglar. Then she hid herself in her bedroom closet.
“If he breaks in, I’m not just going to just be sitting in a chair, like ‘Hi,’” she told Inside Edition.
Thanks to Taylor’s quick detective work, police were able to quickly apprehend the intruder, who also apparently was linked to other break-ins in the area.
