If you're going to burglarize the home of someone you know, make sure you wear a disguise.

Then know that you will likely be caught and jailed.

Police say a Phoenix man broke into the home of his former boss and stole two iPads. Fortunately for the victim, the entire incident was caught on surveillance video.

The homeowner saw Vincente Ortega Cazares, 31, enter his home through the doggie door and leave using the back door. The homeowner contacted police and arrested Cazares later that day, according to court documents.

Cazares admitted to police that he took the items, which were found in the trunk of his car hidden under the spare tire. He faces one count of second-degree burglary.

Court documents did not explain why Cazares allegedly targeted his boss's home.
