Police say bold bandits are targeting homes in Sandy Springs in broad daylight.

Video recorded by doorbell surveillance cameras shows a white Impala back into a driveway. A man with tattoos and a black t-shirt knocks on the door first, then moments later a man with a mask does the same thing.

When no one answers, they go around to the side door and kick it in. About four minutes later, the criminals run out of the house with computers, cash, jewelry, and a safe.

"We're seeing an earlier time when people are away from their homes, coming up knocking on the doors peeking in the window seeing if anybody is home during that time so we're going to we're looking at between the hours of 10 in the morning and two and three o clock in the afternoon," said Sandy Springs Police.

Police say they hit two homes on the same day last Tuesday morning. In those cases, they backed a black sedan into the driveway. They now believe this group is burglarizing homes in other cities or counties.
