Video camera catches Durham break-in

Posted January 24, 2014

— Durham police are trying to identify two men who were caught on camera breaking into a home in the 4000 block of Old Chapel Hill Road late Friday morning.

The video camera set up in the living room of the house recorded the burglary. The men kicked in the door, took a PlayStation and ran out of the house.

Anyone with information on the break-in is asked to call 919-475-2333 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200. Crime Stoppers pays cash for information leading to arrests, and callers never have to identify themselves.

    The position of the camera makes the video footage useless.

    Please, please get them. But then again, maybe they want to be in jail where it is warm and cozy and they get fed.

    Yes, it does like they knew exactly where to go for the Playstation. Will be interesting to find out if they had done work at the house previously or something.

    And left the door open so the cat could escape. I wonder if the cat did escape. That's what I would have been more distraught about. Of course you wouldn't expect thieves to be courteous would you? Hahaha.

    Why do people trust a private company to put cameras in their home? Thats insane.

    It doesn't look like there would be anything worth taking in that pic except for some dirty laundry.

    And they didn't shut the door to keep the cat inside. Disrespect for property is bad enough, but disrespect for beings is worse.
