Caught on Camera: Suspects break into home in Clayton County

Posted: Updated:
CLAYTON COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Some burglars in Clayton County may have avoided police, but they didn't avoid the victim's surveillance cameras.

Police said two men broke into a home near Hampton and stole the victim's personal information and about $2,500 worth of jewelry, guns and cash.

Terry King said he went out to run some errands one day and when he came back, he didn't notice a thing.

His wife soon realized a few things were missing and that's when they noticed the back door had been busted in.

"Looks like they just used all their weight and crushed the jam in two," said King.

He immediately checked the video from his security camera and realized he caught the suspects in the act.

"They're not scared one bit. These guys are professionals, no doubt," said King while watching the video.

On top of their smooth approach, King said they scouted the place out, and when they broke in, seemed to know exactly what they were after.

"There were computers and other things in the house, but evidently they walked right past all that. They knew that most master bedrooms is where people keep their important documents, guns and whatever else," said King.

Clayton County police said the video is so good they're confident it will not only lead to an arrest, but could help out at the next level.

"It's almost good enough that we can at some point definitively identify them in court once they are brought to justice," said Clarence Cox with the Clayton County Police Department.

But until then, King said he's taking matters into his own hands.

"I went around to every door and put in 3- to 4-inch bolts or screws. The other thing I'm going to do is set up more cameras and make sure the area is more secure."
