Tough on crime? Yep, quite literally.

Rep. Jeannie Darneille
“Tough on crime” took on a whole new meaning for State Representative Jeannie Darneille last week, when a burglary occurred in her Tacoma neighborhood.
Rep. Darneille was eating breakfast when she noticed two unfamiliar men leaving her neighbor’s home with backpacks. Never one to sit idly by on the sidelines, Rep. Darneille chased the men into her back alley and was able to catch one of burglar’s license plate information. A few short minutes later, the man was stopped by Tacoma police and most of the valuables returned.
KING 5 covered the incident earlier this week, and you can check-out the entire segment on “Oatmeal Girl’s” heroics below:
