A thief with a crowbar caught on camera, but the question is did the camera trigger the crime? 

With a bandana over the face and a crowbar in the hands, a doorbell video froze. In the video doorbell's place is now a hole in the wall.

The incident happened at a home near 64th Street and Cactus Road. 

Chad, the homeowner, said police have been telling the community that robbers are out to steal security cameras in the neighborhood. 

What's used to help deter criminals actually lured this criminal in. 

Chad is now deciding whether or not he's installing a new security camera that the security company sent to him after he filed a police report.
