    THIS! Is exactly why I got security cameras!!!!!!! So you can catch people like this after the fact or scare them away before. The way a lot of these criminals are behaving I don't want to be opening my door for just anyone knocking. What really pushed me over the edge was my neighbor getting robbed! The next day I went online to southern circuits and ordered a camera system... anyway I realize that was a little off topic but, I'm hoping they catch the guy.. It sends a message to other criminals that you’re not going to get away with robbing hard working people!
