BURGLARS were caught red-handed after a dramatic police chase in a quiet residential street.
The raiders were ransacking a home in Lynton Avenue when a neighbour heard the noise and dialled 999.
Officers set out in pursuit and caught up with them in Sutherland Road, West Ealing, arriving en masse and shocking residents.
One 38-year-old, who asked not to be named, said: "I heard someone screaming stop, stop, stop and saw a man being chased by a copper. Two PCSOs were running towards him from the other side so he couldn't go anywhere.
"Then about five cars turned up as well including a van and a CID car.
"It took about five or six officers to take him down and put him on the floor. He was screaming that they were hurting him until they put the cuffs on and he just sat there.
"The police knew there was another one and the sent a dog into the garden. You could hear it barking so you knew it had got him.
"One was put in a van and the other in a van and then they all went."
The police found a large haul on the criminals including a laptop, a hi-fi, a games console and cash.
A 19-year-old from Hanwell and a 20-year-old from Isleworth have been remanded in custody.
