WEST ODESSA - A pair of would-be burglars land themselves in jail on Monday afternoon after trying to break into a West Odessa home.

Joel Pineda and Ernest Marquez are charged with attempted burglary of a habitation.

Around 1:30 p.m. Monday afternoon, an elderly woman said two men rang her doorbell to see if anyone was home.

When she didn't answer, one of the men threw a rock through her window.

Fortunately deputies were able to respond quickly and catch the crooks before they got into the home.
