Two crooks learned their lesson after breaking into a home in Ecuador and robbing a student – while 25 of her classmates witnessed the crime on Zoom and sounded the alarm, according to a report.
The girl, identified as Maria Jose, was taking part in an online English class in her home in the city of Ambato in Tungurahua when the bungling bandits broke in last week, apparently unaware they were in full view of everyone, the Daily Mail reported.
“Does anyone have the address or the number of her parents?” one shocked student says, prompting another to say they had it.
A third classmate then says, “Call her straight away!”
The screen with Maria being robbed then freezes as the goons swipe her laptop, as well as a safe, $4,000 worth of cash, two guns, a puncturing weapon, two cell phones and a video game console.
Maria’s classmates also alerted the teacher, who appeared not to notice the crime in progress before the thieves fled.
“During this operation, units from the Organized Motorized Group were dispatched and were informed of the criminal act upon arriving at the location,” police said in a statement.
“The perpetrators of the robbery fled the scene in a motorized vehicle and thanks to the location of the mobile phones they robbed, they were located and captured in an area known as Huachi Grande.”
The four suspects who were arrested were identified as Luis C, Valentin P, Carlos A and Dorian R. It was not known what charges they faced.
