Sean Ornelas said it's like watching a movie.

But it's no movie. It's the north Phoenix man's home getting ransacked Wednesday where thieves took took everything valuable from Ornelas. 

"They went back to my room," Ornelas said. "I don't know if that meant they thought someone might be there, but that's pretty scary."

But what they didn't grab was Ornelas' home security device that was transmitting video of them.

"I'm lucky both guys walked right passed the camera," he said.

You see them in the home for nine minutes going from room to room, opening drawers and one even pulled up his sagging pants, possibly to make the getaway easier. The video ends when they take the computer.

"I just digitized all my photos and they were all on the computer, so that's something I can’t get back," Ornelas said.

One clue that may help is one man calls the other man Gustavo.

"I hope we catch them and put them away because there's nothing worse than working hard for what you earn and have someone take that away," he said. "It's not a good feeling."

Phoenix police are investigating the incident.
