Most residents are home at 5 a.m. on a Saturday, even on a holiday weekend. Most people don't travel out of town for Thanksgiving. I'm sure the burglars could see their cars. Cars are hard to hide on the driveway, in front of your home or in the garage. My guess is the burglars didn't care if anyone was home, and they were hoping they were sleeping. They got scared off.
