GLENDALE, AZ - A Glendale couple is speaking out after surveillance cameras caught thieves targeting their security system.
Following a burglary at their home in April, the victims did what many homeowners would do and put in an alarm.
They also took it one step further and put in video cameras.
After installing the cameras, however, something unexpected happened.
Just after the Glendale couple went off to work on May 22, their newly installed surveillance cameras captured a man walking up to their house.
The surveillance video shows him immediately start to rip down the cameras.
To reach one of the cameras, the suspect is seen climbing up a pillar to knock it to the ground.
The homeowners ended up losing three cameras to the thief, but in return, they received multiple pictures of him. (See photos attached to this story)
The homeowners hope someone recognizes this thief and turns him in.
"My main concern is all my neighbors. There's young children here," said Amanda, who asked to only be identified by her first name.
"Someone saw them, someone knows them," she said. "I hope someone can help our community and stop these criminals."
The couple shared their video with the Glendale Police Department.
Investigators are using facial recognition software to try and identify the thief.
If you recognize the man, you're encouraged to call Glendale police at 623-930-3000.
