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.

and take a look at a daring five man heist caught on camera,

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.
