A real estate agent stumbled upon two suspects burglarizing a home Saturday in Placer County, authorities said.
The house was in the 23000 block of Barnes Lane in Colfax, according to a Placer County Sheriff's Office Facebook post. The witness followed the suspects when they fled in their vehicle but lost them on Tokayana Way.
After spotting the vehicle traveling west on I-80 and conducting a felony stop at the Placer Hills Road off-ramp, deputies detained John Forrester, 53, and Desaray Smith, 37, according to the sheriff's office. Both were on probation out of Sacramento County.
Deputies found drug paraphernalia, suspected methamphetamine, a stun gun and burglary tools inside the vehicle the suspects were driving, according to the Facebook post. Later, deputies also found stolen property from the residence that had been burglarized dumped nearby, officials said.
