HOUSTON -- Investigators say burglars are targeting homes in Memorial, Hedwig, and Spring Valley Village. The men may also be armed and dangerous.

“Very shocking,” said a neighbor.

Surveillance video shows men either using rocks to break through the glass doors or they’re kicking in the doors.

In the last few weeks, at least four homes have been hit on Magdalene Drive, North Country Squire and Smith Dale Road.

Police said these men seem to have some type of training.

“Whether it’s military or otherwise, they’re taking an offensive stance with what may be a weapon, which indicates they are prepared for violence,” said Sgt. Randy Chastain.

In one case, a woman confronted the burglars. The men ran out. Neighbors are living in fear. Any suspicious car that drives by, they call police.

One was seen wearing an Oakland Raiders hat. Call Crime Stoppers with any information at (713) 222-TIPS.
