Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is looking for two men accused in a brazen burglary near Sahara and Decatur Sunday.  The thieves only made off with a mini-fridge and tools because of the communities quick response.  
 
"They were taking clothes, they were taking dishes," said realtor Lisa McLaughlin.  
 
Neighbors witnessed one man removing items from the home, as another waited in a black SUV nearby, said McLaughlin.  
 
The homeowners were out of town at the time.  Neighbors confronted the suspect's and called police when they realized a crime was being committed. 
 
"Nosy neighbors are great neighbors," said McLaughlin.
 
People who live nearby said they try to look out for one another in this tight-knit community.
 
"I know all my neighbors," said Jose Babin.
