Homeowners returned from a trip this week to find that their house in the 7000 block of Midbury had been burglarized. A security camera captured the above image of the suspect at 5:44 a.m. June 14.

According to a notice from the Hillcrest East Crime Watch, the residents reported missing jewelry, cash, a laptop, and a video camera. The man broke in and exited from the rear patio. The homeowners have an alarm system, but it failed to go off. They’re contacting the company to find out why.
