A homeowner is furious after thieves crashed a stolen pickup truck into her house, and then ran off.

The crime began just before 5 a.m. Friday when two people stole a truck from a southwest Oklahoma City neighborhood. The truck owners saw what happened, and jumped into another vehicle to chase the truck thieves.

The thieves lost control of the truck near S.W. 36th Street and Western, and crashed into a house in the 3500 block of McKinley Avenue. They ran from the scene before police arrived.

Kathleen Sebree was sleeping inside that house when she heard a loud crash. She woke up, and realized a truck had driven through a wall in her home.

The 67-year-old woman was not hurt. She's lived in the house for 60 years. She told News 9's Rusty Surette she'd love to get her hands on the crooks.

"I'd beat the crap out of them, [even] with my arthritis back and stuff," said Sebree. "I told the police I wanted to see who did this. I just can't believe people would take other people's stuff."

The truck thieves have not been caught.
