MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- "It was kind of crazy," a burglary victim told WREG.

A group of guys broke into a woman's home, ransacked it, and stole jewelry along with a couple of televisions.

The house is located on Bishop Hills Drive.

"I don't even want to make no statement or anything," the victim said.

One week after the crime, the victim clutched one hand to her chest and the other around her cell phone.

"It really bothers me because it's been a lot of trouble in this neighborhood," Paula Csap said.  "A lot of robberies."

Shelby County Sheriff's Deputies are not saying much, but the arrest warrant shows they arrested 18-year-old Michael Strickland and two others.

Court documents reveal the burglars recorded themselves on a cell phone while inside the home.

"I was just like okay.  I mean it's no common sense," Csap said. "It's like, what are you thinking?"

According to the affidavit, one of the suspects gave the phone away to a friend, who showed it to the victim and told deputies.

"They're just stupid.  I mean if you are going to rob a house and you've got a recording in that.  I mean it's like lets just play Russian Roulette and see if we get caught or not," Csap said.

Strickland appeared in court Wednesday and is expected back in court next week.

    Impulse item do you actually knowo how stupid and backwards you sound? Just like some trailer park trash, you just sit back chewing on your tobacco and snuff and blame any non-white you can name, you need to take your backwards butt and get back int he bed … People like you are worst then any criminal around … coward.

        No, It wasn’t. People who use their brains for basic mathematics and who don’t just hate all black people realize that Strickland and his underage buddies are too young to have voted for Obama. You both get the derp award for the week.
