A northeast Kansas police officer is getting credit from Missouri colleagues for helping make quick work of a burglary case.

KMBC-TV reports the officer works for the Overland Park Police Department but lives in Kansas City, Mo.

The officer was coming home late Wednesday morning when he noticed someone inside his own house, looking out. Kansas City police say the officer parked up the street, walked to his home and held one burglary suspect at gunpoint.

Two other suspects ran but were quickly taken into custody.

Investigators said the burglars apparently picked the officer's home at random and were looking for weapons and electronics.
