Three pre-teen boys chased off car thieves who were trying to steal a pastor's vehicle in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

These unlikely heroes noticed something wasn't right when they saw two men near their pastor's Ford Mustang convertible. When they realized the men were breaking into the vehicle, they sprang into action.

Equipped with sticks, pipes, and a whole lot of courage, the boys managed to run off the would-be criminals and thwart the potential theft or carjacking. The pastor says her car has been broken into before, but she was grateful for the boys and their courageous actions.

Check out the video above to see an interview with the brave young heroes.
