GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) -- When a man broke into a Grants Pass house over the weekend, a 14-year-old girl went into a drill she'd practiced with her family: Get a description. Call 911. Hide.

Police say the man knocked on the front door and rang the doorbell Saturday morning, and then pulled a screen from the window to get in.

Meanwhile, the girl gave the 911 dispatcher what was described as a detailed description of the man and then retreated to a closet with her 12-year-old brother. She stayed on the call.

Ninety seconds later, the Grants Pass Daily Courier (http://bit.ly/16VaBjX) reported, police officers arrived.

Police detained 25-year-old Brandon W. Weeks of no permanent address as he left the property and booked him on charges of burglary, criminal mischief and probation violation.
