Burglars caught on camera often use windows
as a point of entry to make their way
into the homes of their unsuspecting victims.
They're often unsecured,
making it easy for the criminal to push it open
and gain entry to the home.
The burglar in this video however
has a slightly different interest
when it comes to the home's windows.
In the video captured on the homeowners doorbell camera,
we can see the casual burglar
appear in the darkness of the homes front yard.
Without hesitation the bold criminal
approaches the front porch and walks right up to the door.
There's nothing particularly unusual about the burglar
other than his extreme focus on his task
and his complete lack of care of who might be watching.
This particular burglar
seems to have a very particular need in mind.
He walks onto the homeowners front porch
and picks up a window frame with a pane of glass inside.
He walks away carrying the large window
seemingly satisfied with his new acquisition.
The thief's behavior suggests
that he chose this home for his burgling
because he knew he would find
exactly what he was looking for.
One possibility is that the man is a nearby neighbor
who knew that these home owners were doing renovations
and decided to take the opportunity to walk away
with an expensive new window for his own home.
Stealing from your neighbors is hard work.
After a long night of breaking and entering,
burglars caught on camera
sometimes just need to kick back
with a nice cold drink to take the edge off
and congratulate themselves on a job well done.
At least that seems to be the case
for the bold burglar in this video.
The doorbell camera footage this homeowner captured
begins with a white truck pulling up in front of the house.
It's late at night, so what could this driver be doing?
We see a man get out of the truck
and walk quickly across the front yard.
When the man reaches the porch,
he doesn't waste any time trying the doors or windows
to see if they're open.
He doesn't look around to make sure there's no one watching,
he seems entirely confident in his dastardly mission.
Instead of casing the house to try and get inside,
the burglar in this video heads straight for the cooler
sitting outside of the front door.
He reaches inside and pulls out a four pack of beer.
The man quickly turns and walks back to his truck
holding his illicitly acquired libations.
Is this thief a neighbor
who knows that this neighbor makes a habit
of keeping ice-cold refreshments in a cooler overnight?
Or was this simply a crime of opportunity?
Either way this petty theft
is certainly a bold and bizarre act of thievery.
Perhaps the man should have simply asked his neighbor
to be invited over for a drink
instead of getting caught on camera stealing the brews.
Burglars caught on camera rarely carry out their crimes
in the light of day.
The dark of night is much safer
for their sneaky and daring acts of thievery.
However, the woman in this video
is either very bold or very stupid.
As she carries out her criminal activity
in the harsh light of day when anyone could be watching.
The woman appears to be taking her dog for a walk
when she suddenly decides to walk away
with something that doesn't belong to her.
The doorbell camera footage picks her up
as she's walking by the front of the house with her dog.
However, she decides to make a quick stop
before carrying on with her walk.
It seems that the home's welcome mat has caught her eye.
Holding the dog's leash in one hand
she leans down and picks up the welcome mat
from the front porch and boldly walks away
with her prize in hand.
Perhaps this thief is in the midst
of their own home renovation project
and needs a new welcome mat,
and decided to take this opportunity to grab some goods
from an unsuspecting neighbor.
The mat does say welcome,
but it's doubtful the homeowners meant
that the neighbors are welcome to steal
whatever catches their eye.
Buying furniture for your home can be expensive,
especially if you want to decorate an outdoor space.
One way to cut costs
is to simply liberate some tables and chairs
from your unsuspecting neighbors.
If they leave it on their balcony
that means it's free for the taking, right.
The man in this video seems to think so.
In this footage,
we see a man standing on a balcony late one night.
The balcony seems to be facing some sort of alley.
Just under the balcony there's a large vehicle
that he may have climbed on to gain access to the balcony.
It's likely this vehicle will enable his getaway.
The man seems to have his eye
on the homeowners outdoor furniture.
He moves around the balcony,
stacking up the four lawn chairs and a small table
in preparation to make off with the furniture.
He begins piling the stolen goods
on top of what appears to be a covered grill.
The video ends before we can see
if he decides to take the grill along with him.
Either way his decision to steal a set of outdoor furniture
is certainly unusual.
Porch decor seems to be a popular target
for burglars caught on camera.
Things left outside are easy to steal,
so thieves usually have no problem
making off with these poorly guarded items
when no one's watching.
While many thieves seem to target
large ticket items such as furniture,
some like the woman in this video
are more interested in their neighbors
whimsical decorating touches.
The burglar in this video seems to have her eye
on the plants and floral decorations
adorning this stylish front porch.
In the corner between the porches two doorways
hangs a large red flower decoration.
The burglar is likely a friend or neighbor
as it's unlikely that this bit of decor
could have been seen from the street.
The woman stops to admire the decoration for a moment
before slowly taking it off the wall.
She glances over her shoulder towards the front door
as if nervous that the homeowner will walk out
and catch her in the middle of her thievery.
She walks casually back to her waiting car
and drives away with her meager prize.
If you're stylish in your decorating touches
you might be wise to limit yourself
to the inside of your home.
A jealous neighbor or passerby
might just decide to steal your style for themselves.
This video appears to take place
outside of an apartment building.
There's a small patio just inside an unsecured fence
with a few parking spaces on the other side.
The thief in this video doesn't get too close
with these getaway vehicle however.
The man walks across the parking lot
from an unknown location
before easily walking around the fence
and going straight for his target, a large outdoor rug.
The man quickly folds the rug
not taking time to roll it properly
and easily walks away with his ill-gotten priors
tucked under his arm.
The burglar caught on camera is carrying a backpack
and something else in his hand
while making off with the rug.
So perhaps the theft of this rug
was just one more stop in a long night of thievery.
Regardless, the burglar seemed focused in his crime,
so he's likely to be a neighbor who spotted the rug before
and returned at night
to walk away with a new piece of decor.

Not all acts of thievery are as petty
as many of the crimes on this list.
Some burglars caught on camera make away
with a big ticket item that the homeowner will surely miss.
The burglars in this video
clearly have their eye on a bigger prize,
As five mask thieves are involved in this late-night heist.
This is not a case of a lone neighbor
taking advantage of a situation
to walk away with a bit of outdoor furniture.
The thieves in this video have set their sights
on a large jet ski.
The burglars apparently decided
that the quickest way to bank off with their target item
would be to unhitch the wheeled dolly holding the jet ski
from the owners vehicle and simply wheel away with the item.
With such a large object,
it take several burglars to wheel the jet ski
across the driveway and load it into the waiting truck.
The thieves are quite brazen despite their masks,
not worrying about keeping themselves quiet
as they load the stolen item onto the truck.
The video ends before they make their getaway.
But with all the noise it's surprising
that they managed to make off with such a large item
without getting caught.
