HARRIS COUNTY -- A local family says burglars hit their house not once, but twice in one day, and it was all caught on camera.
Surveillance cameras captured a woman and her friends as they struck once and then came back for more at the home in the 9600 block of Berridge House Court in northwest Harris County.
Reginald Lacy was out all of Wednesday running errands.
“On Wednesday, my home was burglarized by three males and one female,” said Lacy.
What the crooks didn’t know was the cameras were rolling the entire time.
“They were casing the place,” said Lacy. “The girl came up and rang the door bell.”
She stood there for a few minutes, making sure no one was at home.
Lacy said she went back to the Chevy and told her three buddies the coast was clear.
They made themselves right at home by backing into the driveway. They kicked the door open to get in.
A Gucci jacket, among several other things, was carried out in suitcases.
The burglary took place around 11:00 a.m.; three hours later, the suspects came back for more.
“They came back around 1:49 p.m. and stole my guns and everything,” said Lacy. “They stole my hand, AK pistol, my SKS, rifle and 380 hand gun and 500 rounds.”
Police arrested 19-year-old Taquera Tidwell.
Lacy believes Tidwell and at least one of the guys live in the neighborhood.
“I’m pissed off ‘cuz the dudes is still running free around here,” said Lacy.
Lacy also isn’t too happy knowing that his high-powered rifles are out on the streets.
Anyone with information about the other three suspects is urged to call the Harris County Sheriff’s Office at 713-221-6000 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
