Bernard Berrian made 288 catches during his NFL career with the Bears and Vikings, but his biggest catch may have come recently at his home—one he never saw coming.

After having his home robbed twice, Berrian installed security cameras at his Fresno, Calif., home, according to a report by ABC30 in Fresno.

Soon after installation, Berrian was at a barbecue in April with his longtime friend and ex-Fresno State teammate Therrian Fontenot, the report states. After Fontenot left the barbecue, Berrian reportedly got an email alert from his home security.

It was crazy because we were all sitting around and he actually left from where we were at to go do it, Berrian told ABC30. Boom, motion sensor went off, I get an email, so I click on the live cam. I actually watched him doing it while he was doing it. I could have actually spoke to him, I got a microphone on there. I could have told him, I got you, while he was doing it.

The first two burglaries netted $30,000, but there was not enough evidence to charge Fontenot. Berrian’s friend, though, did receive a six-month sentence recently for the latest burglary.
