DENVER - Two burglars were caught on camera trying to break into a home in Denver's Washington Park neighborhood, but they ran away when they discovered the homeowner was inside.
After four decades on his quiet street, Bill Wilde, 74, ("You can call me Wild Bill, if you like!") isn't afraid to make a little noise.
His homemade alarm system can be heard all over the neighborhood when it goes off.
The retired engineer installed the system for peace of mind after the first attempted break-in there in 1976.
"Subsequently, I've updated with more sophisticated electrical components," he said with a grin.
