GREENE COUNTY, Mo. -- Dan Booher was going to be away for just a few minutes, so he did not lock the back door of the family home in southern Greene County, nor did he activate the alarm system.  That was his mistake. Shortly after Booher drove away, a man and woman drove up.  They rang the doorbell, went to the back door, walked in, and six minutes later walked out with thousands of dollars in electronic equipment.  That was likely their mistake.  Dan Booher's home surveillance system recorded the entire thing.
