Home Burglary

NO police report was filed

Date of occurrence: 07/04/2014

Approx time: 3:30 AM

Nearby street intersections: Jaeger Street and Stewart Ave

Brief description:

A young man (20's, white, long blonde hair pulled back into a pony tail) was captured on security video walking around our back yard between 8-9 pm on 7/3/14. He appeared to be under the influence and at one point appears to vomit into our bushes while holding onto a tree for support. He then lays down on the grass for a time. He is also seen texting someone on his cell phone. This was likely around the time of Red, White and Boom. He returns to the back yard around 3:30 am on 7/4/14 and is caught on video again. He then breaks into the back door, which triggered the alarm. The interior cameras capture him going immediately out the front door and pulling the door closed behind him. The police arrived approximately 20 minutes later and found the front door standing open. They inspected the back yard and the interior of our home, and then they left a note on the front door stating they responded to a false alarm. They probably assumed we had left the door open by mistake.

We have not filed a police report yet because the police dispatcher stated an officer would need to come to our home, and we are out of town until Sunday. We will file a report as soon as we get back. In the meantime, we have alerted our neighbor and had family go check to make sure everything is okay. Lights were turned on at the front and back doors, and all the alarms/cameras were reset, in case something happens again while we are gone. Based on previous reports here, I'm not expecting the police to do anything with the video we have, but we are uploading screenshots of the robbers face here. I'd be happy to upload the videos too, but I don't know how.

Please keep an eye out for this guy. I believe these people walk around the alleys looking through our trash, but what they are actually doing is checking to see if anyone is home, if there are any dogs, and how to get into our yards/homes. I'll be happy to provide any additional info, if anyone is interested.

    Don’t get me wrong. What happened was a terrible thing and should be reported to the police. However, it was not a Home Invasion. It doesn’t even appear to have been a burglary. It was certain trespass and breaking & entering. The CyberBlockWatch webmaster should have known better than to have used this inflammatory language. Several years ago there was a true home invasion in our neighborhood and it rightfully caused a virtual panic among our residents. What you suffered was barely an inconvenience by comparison.
    I’m not trying to minimize the discomfort you are feeling, I’m just trying to put it into perspective.

  2. Thank you for your feedback Jay. We updated the posting title. The content was provided by the registered user. We’ll work to better define the categories of crime and wording.

    Thank you for the narrative, your words are quite informational. While I am happy for the fact they did not steal anything material, they have in fact stolen your security and part of your feeling of well being in your own home. Things like this only generate more suspicions towards the world around us.
    Someone has in fact vioated the security you have in the private world inside of your home. It may not make the content of the word “burglary” but it certainly meets the words you choose to explain how your security was literally raped by a stranger. That young man may give thanks no one was home, otherwise the results could’ve been devastating for him, since he forcefully penetrated into your castle.
    My guess is we will have to wait until the breach happens again and someone is indeed home asleep or otherwise, and a truly sad event happens so we can call it a “home invasion”. Let me tell you, to some I have shared this notice with, do indeed call it a home invasion. You know the saying, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.

    Thank you, Carlos. I couldn’t have said it better myself. Personally, I DON’T CARE if it was an “invasion” versus a “burglary.” I’m not a lawyer, a cop, or a judge, and there are no legal definitions on this site to guide me when I report such an event. All I know is that someone forced their way into my home, and I used this site to report it.

    I have officially reported the matter to the police now. The lock on my back door was destroyed, as well as the trim on my gate where this kid jumped my fence. He also destroyed one of my planters and a sprinkler head. Unfortunately for me, the police didn’t really do much except file the report. Unfortunately for him, he left behind personal belongings that allowed us to identify him.
