Surveillance video catches Stockton burglar, no arrests made | Crime
STOCKTON - A Stockton home burglary is caught on surveillance video, but the victims said the tape only helps them know how to improve their home security.
The Stockton Police report multiple armed robberies Saturday night, but for the burglary victims police can't respond to, they say fear they'll be targeted again.
A North Stockton family left home for only a few hours Friday afternoon, but four surveillance cameras set up around the house showed it was plenty of time for three burglars to break in and take off with a lot of property.
The first camera positioned at the front door shows a young man ring and knock several times. He leaves briefly, but returns with two more young men.
Sunday afternoon, the family who lives in the house went to task replacing the doors and locks.
"Today we're just putting together the doors," said Thoamy Huynh, who lives in the home with her boyfriend's family.
"They broke both of them off here and at the garage."
From three more camera angles, the burglars hop the fence and enter the backyard. They tried to enter through the windows, but eventually they break in through the garage door.
"They took cash, a laptop, a camera with pictures that I didn't get a chance to back up," said Huynh.
"They took some jewelry as well as my promise ring that was engraved and that I'd like to get back."
This is not the first house on the block to be burglarized. Stockton Police did come out to look at the videos and fingerprint the house at the family's urging, but the victims said they still fear burglars will come back for more.
"We're all a little paranoid to leave the house," said Huynh.
"I do fear they're going to come back. I hope someone out there recognizes these individuals, because it would be great to know they're not out there doing this to other families."
