This crime is bound to make you mad. A vigilant neighbor snapped a picture of brazen crooks stealing in the middle of the day.
The burglary happened Friday morning on Greenwitch Circle East. That's near north academy and Constitution in Colorado Springs.
In the picture you can see the crook shoving a flat screen TV into the backseat of a red car. That TV belongs to Xina James. She says the suspects ripped it right off her wall.
“It's not the stuff. It's the fact that you walked into my house, when I was not here and it meant nothing,” James explained.
James says her vigilant neighbor spotted the boys walking out with their arms full of electronics. The neighbor confronted them, started snapping pictures and then called police.
"When you have someone who lives next to you and your children play together. That's your family. My family was looking out for me."
The suspects got away, but James is hoping someone in our community will recognize the crooks and help get them off the street.
"I hope they're caught. For nothing else, to learn that you messed with the wrong neighborhood,” James said.
Colorado Springs Police say the red car the suspects were driving is stolen.
The suspects got away with a flat screen TV, and two lap top computers.
Police say this is a good reminder for all of us to write down the serial number, and make and model of your electronics. That’s the best way to match items back to their owners.
