Thieves captured on smart security cameras
Guns, alcohol and jewellery were stolen from a residence in Mulmur on Monday during a rural break-in at a property on Second Line West.
Although the homeowner was not home and his alarm malfunctioned, the home’s smart cameras alerted him to the intruders’ presence and he called a neighbour to check on the home.
The neighbour startled the three people who then took off before the police could arrive.
The home’s ecobee voice controlled indoor security cameras picked up the speech and movements of the intruders and revealed three suspects were in the home at about 5:20 p.m.
Upon arrival, police noted a door had been forced open, and the safe had been emptied. It was later confirmed that four firearms had been forcibly removed from a gun case using a grinder, and a number of purses and wallets had been stolen from the residence.
The footage also shows the culprits intended to steal two vehicles from the garage but were unable to find the keys or deactivate the security systems.
The first female suspect was wearing a purple TNA hoodie, a purple plaid jacket, jeans, a black and white face cover, and knee-high boots. A second female suspect was wearing a green jacket, black pants with white writing on the left leg, a black hoodie, and a black face covering.
The male suspect was wearing a black and grey hoodie, yellow gloves, black ball cap, and a black bandana.
Their vehicle is a white Chevrolet dually style truck, with noticeable damage to the rear passenger side of the truck, diesel exhaust vents on the hood, tinted side windows, no tailgate, and no licence plates affixed to either end of the vehicle.
