“OMG Im scard,” Lauren said in a text message to her mother, Margo Roby, 53, who was working at a car dealership about 15 minutes away. “I think were being robd Im hiding help me!”
Roby called 911 and raced home from work, ramming her vehicle into the back of the suspects’ car parked in the driveway, authorities said.
Rowr. She got there faster than the cops, too:
One of the suspects, Jenna Marie Burns, came out of the house and Roby wrestled with her just as sheriff’s deputies and the police chief arrived, said Fairfield County Sheriff Dave Phalen.

Lauren Durnbaugh, 13, was home sick from school Tuesday when she heard someone open a rear door her mother forgot to lock. She hid as the suspects went from room to room.
