Freaky story out in Johnson County. A young girl was left home alone in rural JoCo when a burglar broke into the home around 10 this morning.

The girl heard a loud bang at the front door and hid inside the home in the 15800 block of Meadow Lane. About the same time, her 17-year-old brother returned home to find an early '90s model GM car sitting in the driveway. The boy asked the guy -- described as a black male -- what he was doing. The guy told him he was with a lawn care company. Would have been plausible had he not thrown the car in reverse and sped away.



The boy went inside and confronted another man -- described as a black

male with dreadlocks, in his early twenties and wearing a white T-shirt

and dark pants -- who fled the scene after being found out.

Good thing no one was injured in all of this.

As usual, if you have info about the incident, give the TIPS Hotline

(816-474-TIPS) or the Johnson County Sheriff's Office (913-715-5560) a

call.
