Woman in Philippines cracks Okla. case

MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) — Police say three people who tried to rob a man's suburban Oklahoma City apartment were caught by his wife in the Philippines, who saw them on the webcam the couple uses to communicate while they're apart.

Midwest City police Chief Brandon Clabes says officers nabbed the three burglary suspects over the weekend after Maribel Chouinard spotted them and called her husband, an Air Force master sergeant at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City.

The husband called police, who found two teens near the apartment and later found the third suspect.

Clabes says all three were identified from a photo lineup e-mailed to Chouinard in the Philippines.

Master Sgt. Jim Chouinard says he met his wife overseas and she's waiting for her visa to be processed.
