Two burglars thought that the Arcadia home they were targeting was safe, but the crime was all caught on surveillance cameras.

"Dude, I have been there for four days, trust me. They haven’t been here. I want to look around," said the burglar, only known as Michael, as he was trying to calm down his partner in crime.

Michael’s friend started to panic when he had a gut feeling that he was being watched.

“Michael, we need to go for a minute. It’s the right thing to do,” the second burglar said.

But, trusting Michael was a bad move because the motion-triggered cameras were picking up everything.

"I feel violated when you see people walking around your home like it is their home, and you see people taking your stuff like it is their stuff," the homeowner, Judd Nemiro, said.

Nemiro feared the worst when he came home to find shattered glass on the ground. Footage on the security cameras confirmed it all: 15 years’ worth of treasures and technology stolen.

The burglary happened near 50th Street and Osborn Road in Phoenix in early Monday morning hours.

Nemiro said that, judging by the chatter caught on camera, he can tell at least one of the suspects has some experience.

"It doesn't take a trained eye to see that Michael has done this before," Nemiro said.

Nemiro is offering a $1,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest of both men.

"I want to prevent other houses from getting hit. I want to prevent these guys from robbing other people," Nemiro said.
