Crime Caught On Home Surveillance Cameras

Posted: Updated:

Mobile Police are asking for your help in locating two men who were captured on a home surveillance camera attempting to break into a home. This all happened Friday afternoon in west Mobile.

Watch as one of the men walk away from the back door of a home on Demetropolis Road in Mobile Friday around noon. Seconds later another man walks up and knocks on the metal door. Same as before, no response. Once the two realize that no one's home they get ready to make their move. One man's face is clearly visible. They pick up firewood and get ready to bust down the door, hoping to use the firewood as a weapon. The homeowner suspects the men heard his dog on the other side of the door and were arming themselves before trying to enter the home.

"You see these two guys trying to break into your house, you don't know why you don't know who they are you seem them threatening to hit another member of your family," said homeowner Robert Hammond.

Next, one of the men takes his right foot and attempts to bust the door down. Time and again he tries but has no luck. He looks over his right shoulder to make sure no one's looking and goes at it for a third time.

The second suspect decides he'll take a shot at breaking the lock, but they quickly realize they're not getting in. The two crooks walk out of the shot and realize fast that they were being filmed the entire time.

"There were two sides to this whole thing, one was oh my god my house is being broken into and oh my god these guys are really stupid," said Hammond.

The two men grabbed the camera and pulled it from the wall. They think they've destroyed the evidence but little do they know, the hard-drive was inside the home not in the camera.

A neighbor says he saw a small, white car leaving the driveway around noon on Friday.

If you have any information that may help police please give them a call.
