PALMER, Alaska — A Palmer family says their 12-year-old son's quick-thinking actions likely stopped a burglary attempt they say went on at their home Wednesday afternoon.
Zion Rogers says he'd just come home from Palmer Junior Middle School Wednesday when he heard someone entering through an unlocked door, walking across the floor, and entering some of the rooms in the house.
"That really started to frighten me, and the next thing I knew I heard drawers opening," Zion said.
By then, Zion says he had fled to the bathroom and closed the door.
Without a phone, the Internet on Zion's iPod Touch was the only he could tell people something was wrong. He turned to the Facebook app on his iPod, and typed out a message.
"It said, 'I think there's a robber in the house, please call my mom,'" Zion explained.
The message apparently got the attention of many of Zion's friends and family members.
