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.
