At least two burglars were caught on home surveillance camera multiple times over a six-hour period stealing from a Phoenix grandmother's home.

"It was really frightening to me," Lois Harris told ABC15, reacting to the break-in and seeing the video. Harris was working overnight Sunday to Monday when her recently installed cameras captured a man in a baseball cap entering her home near 43rd Avenue and Greenway Road around 10:30 p.m. 

The man appeared to leave and return to the home several times in a white SUV until 4:30 a.m. and, at one point, was spotted leaving Harris' home with a woman. 

"I don't recognize them at all," she said. "The things that they took didn't make sense. It was crazy."

Harris said her bedroom looked "like a tornado had hit it" and her belongings were dumped and scattered around the home.

The thieves took a digital camera, various trinkets, two antique lamps and, strangely, a photo of Harris with a group of Girl Scouts.

Harris filed a report with Phoenix Police Department and is asking anyone with information on the burglars to come forward.
