ELBERTA, Ala. (WKRG) — A band of thieves hit an Elberta neighborhood early Sunday morning stealing anything they could get their hands on and it was all caught on home security cameras.

Elberta police say at least ten vehicles were hit in the Wolf Run neighborhood and they didn’t just break into the cars, they stole three of them.

Home security camera’s capture a figure moving up a driveway, opening a truck door and in no particular hurry, he rummages through the truck, moves out and then goes back again to get what he wants before moving on to his next target.  Once he is done, he walks away motioning to at least four other individuals that casually walk down the street to see what else they can find.

“The flashlight started from here and they walked this way.”  Angela Green was one of the lucky ones. Her security cameras captured the group walking around her house and outdoor garage.  “They realize they can’t get into this building so they tried to get into that one,” she says pointing to a neighbors shed.

Nothing was taken from her but she still feels violated.  “I’m in fear that they will come back,” she says.  “Maybe they saw something they may want and they’re not getting caught.”

The entire neighborhood is on edge after police say at least ten vehicles were broken into with guns, wallets and even three vehicles stolen. One has since been recovered. 

The crew spent about an hour and a half in the neighborhood before taking their stolen vehicles, along with everything else they had stolen, and disappeared into the darkness.

Police say the thieves only stole from unlocked cars and the ones that were stolen had their keys inside.

Similar thefts were also reported in Daphne, Orange Beach and Foley.
