JERICHO - A Jericho man caught an alleged thief in the act while watching an Internet surveillance feed of his home, even though he was halfway around the world when it happened.

The victim was vacationing in China when he saw a woman running out the side door of his home on Hazelwood Drive last night.

He called the cops, and officers tell News 12 they arrested the woman in the backyard.

Police say the accused woman is the homeowner's ex-girlfriend.
