SPRING, Texas (KPRC) -- A group of thieves was caught on home surveillance video as they broke into several cars in a Spring, Texas neighborhood.
"I was really surprised when I first saw they checked my door," said John Ellett.
Ellett said he didn't even know he had been targeted by thieves because the group broke in when most residents were asleep.
"I had no idea until the next day when the police officers came by and noticed I had surveillance cameras," said Ellett.
It wasn't the surveillance cameras around Ellett's house that stopped him from becoming a victim. It was that his truck was locked and he left nothing inside to steal.
"If your vehicles are not locked, people just strolling by will go through your vehicles," said Ellett. "These are guys are so bold, they just go in through the garage."
