Three people who snuck into a fumigated home late Sunday evening have been taken into custody, San Diego police confirmed.
Police first responded at approximately 11:54 p.m. Sunday when they were told three men were inside the home.
The homeowner, Thirtith Yin, said his house was getting fumigated at the time. However, he was concerned about someone breaking into the home, so he was sleeping in his car outside the home.
At one point, the traffic noise was too loud, so he left to sleep elsewhere.
Meanwhile, his son was monitoring the cameras installed inside and outside of his home when he noticed three people inside the home.
Authorities were notified, and the suspects were apprehended a short time later. The suspect got away with a pair of shoes.
Yin warned others to be careful when their homes are being fumigated.
"You have to be careful, maybe watch your house very carefully," he said. "Because you never know, maybe it happen, like me."
Police responded, but asked San Diego Fire for breathing apparatuses because of the gas inside.
Parts of the tent had to be removed to ventilate the home.
The three suspects were taken to a hospital for an evaluation.
