Texas man, daughter chase after burglars

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON, Texas (CNN) - A father-daughter team from Texas attempted to take the law into their own hands by chasing after suspects who they said robbed their home.

"I'm proud of my daughter.  My daughter, Alana, is a tough one, and she is just a very, very hard-nosed girl."

The pair drove after the suspects, chasing them for several miles. They crashed once and then the alleged burglars threw the truck in reverse and crashed into them again.

Police arrived minutes later and captured two of the three men.

The man believes they're responsible for other burglaries in his neighborhood.

"We're not going to tolerate it anymore in my neighborhood. We're not going to tolerate it."

The man's daughter suffered whiplash from the crash but was released from the hospital. They were able to recover several of their belongings from the back of the truck.
