Burglars Ransack and Steal-On Camera NR15005jr

January 6, 2015

Los Angeles: As the video
cameras captured their criminal caper, three youthful burglars
brazenly entered a home undeterred that their crime would be
viewed by the owner-and police.

On Friday, December 26, 2014, three suspects, despite knowing they
were being filmed, broke into a Los Angeles residence on the 6600
block of Olympic Boulevard and took thousands of dollars in
property and cash. The first of the three burglars walked up to the
front door of the residence, covered his hand with his sleeve, and
rang the doorbell to see if anyone was home. Determining that no
one was inside the residence, the three burglars momentarily
delayed their entry due to a postal service delivery person who
approached the home. After the postman left the property, the three
suspects returned and went into the backyard where they discovered
a surveillance camera capturing their crime in progress.

Despite knowing they were being filmed, the suspects broke into the
residence and took money and expensive computer equipment worth
thousands of dollars. All of the suspect’s actions were captured on
an extensive surveillance system that was installed in the upscale
Wilshire area home.
