Video captures Sherman car burglary

SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) - Wednesday morning a car burglar was caught on camera inside someone's garage.

A video from around 2 a.m. shows a man searching the car with a flashlight, taking the dash cam and leaving.

And that wasn't the only burglary. Police said someone broke into a car a couple streets over around the same time.

"Could have been a lot worse," said one of the victims, who didn't want to show his face on camera.

He's talking about his wife's car that got broken into on West Anita Street in Sherman.

He said around 2 a.m. Wednesday morning, he saw spotlights from a police car outside and heard noise.

"Figured I should probably go and check out my car and bring it in," he said.

His car was parked outside and his wife's in the garage, but the garage door was wide open and both cars unlocked.

He didn't see any damage, but later that morning, he noticed something unusual.

"Realized that my wife's dash cam was missing," he said.

Which he said cost them about $50.

The burglar didn't just steal from them, he also left something behind.

"He actually ended up dropping his glass pipe with a whole bunch of weed in it," the man said.

It's all caught on their security camera, and it took him less than three minutes to rummage through both cars.

This victim said it's frustrating.

"The fact that someone went into our vehicles and kind of went into our personal space," he said.

They weren't the only victims.

Police said another burglary was reported from early Wednesday morning on West McLain Drive near Hickory Street.

It's not confirmed if the two are related.

The man said from now on, he'll make sure his doors are locked and the garage is shut.

"We were just happy that we were able to catch him on camera, and we were able to give all that evidence to the police," he said.

These two car break-ins bring the total to eight reported to Sherman police in the past few weeks.

Sherman Police said this crime increases with the temperature.

So of course, they say to always lock your car doors and take your valuable items inside.
