Transcript for Burglar Caught on Camera With Homeowners Still Inside
Now to a brazen burglar caught on camera. The homeowners unaware that a stranger was stealing their belongings and raiding their fridge while they were home. ABC's Michelle Franzen has more. Reporter: A Houston couple nearly came face to face with a bold and creepy criminal who broke in the dead of night while they were there. Every move caught on camera. Overnight, an audacious burglar breaking into a home with the owners still inside. The surveillance video shows the robber outside the home, trying to scale the fence. First attempt, didn't work, but later in the house. The homeowner didn't want to identify himself, but did talk to reporter Jessica Willie from our Houston station. The fact somebody came into my space and took my stuff while I'm here. How brazen is that. Reporter: The burglar on the patio, even with the lights and TV on inside. He momentarily leaves, but shows back up. The suspect made his way upstairs where one of the security cameras captured the clearest image of his face. Makes me wonder, what if that guy's come here before? Reporter: And get this, he entered the bedroom where one of the homeowners was sleeping and took a wallet and watch. Back down stairs, swiped a laptop, and even took off with some of the couple's food. I feel violated. Reporter: They will add more security cameras in and around the home. But it's unnerving to watch as the suspect moved around the house so casually. They are using the surveillance tape to track him down. It's beneficial they had the cameras they did have. And maybe an alarm next time. You're right, made himself at home. In the fridge. Got a good shot. I think they'll find him quickly. Let's hope so. Thank you.
