ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An alert neighbor was praised after he caught two burglars breaking in to a house next door. 

Steven Sides said that his neighbor Frank's quick-thinking led to the arrests of 22-year-old Branden Miller and 24-year-old Ryan Adams. 

Sides said the two men broke in through his doggy door. 

They tried to steal electronics, but thanks to Frank, cops arrived just in time to recover the stolen items and return them to Sides. 

"But they came walking right back up to me, put it right back where it was and I said, 'Thank you. I appreciate your service,' and I do," said Sides.

Police arrested Miller and Adams.
