EDMOND, Okla. - He has a big bark but no bite. When intruders pried open the front door, eight-pound Bo wasn't much of a deterrent.

The thieves rifled through Ross Roberts' bevy of boots; each pair is worth more than $1,000.

"I was a custom boot maker in the past and I had a bunch of boots on a rack and some guns gone,"  Roberts said.

Thieves also left their mark on his rare gun collection.

According to Roberts, "You don't want guns in the hands of criminals. They were engraved. Highly engraved guns, collector's items and easily identifiable."

What they didn't plan on was Roberts coming home from work early. He pulled into the driveway and noticed the front door open.

Before they could escape, the quick-thinking homeowner pulled out his cell phone.

"I was trying to take pictures and they were trying to block it. They were very insistent, do not take pictures," Roberts said.

He was able to snap several incriminating photos, capturing a good look at his unwelcome guests and their getaway car.
