Man thwarts burglars while out watching the night sky.

A stargazer is credited with helping Florida deputies stop a crime in progress.

Larry Davis says was sitting in his lanai Wednesday night when he noticed three guys breaking into a neighbor's vacant home.

Davis called the homeowner to see if anyone had rented the place.

When the owner told him that was not the case, Davis called 9-1-1 and kept a watchful eye on the men until help arrived.

"Two guys tried to come out the window. I yelled to the cop, 'The window! The window!'" said Davis.

Deputies arrested four suspects.

They're charged with burglary to an unoccupied dwelling and resisting arrest.
