SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO (CBS) — Authorities say a man and woman stole from a car in Dana Point and went on to burglarize the owner’s home in San Juan Capistrano.
A surveillance camera caught the burglars in surprising clarity and police are hoping the images help lead them to the suspects.
The suspects even knew they were being filmed – at one point in the video, the woman can be seen pointing towards the camera and alerting her partner-in-crime, who she calls “Anthony”.
As he struggles to grasp what he is saying he turns towards the camera, which captures a clear image of his face.
The thieves went on to nab $15,000 worth of valuables from the victim’s home, including a gun they found in the bedroom, before taking off.
Investigators said the suspects were able to get into the home by stealing the owner’s garage door opener from her car.
San Juan Capistrano police are asking people to contact them if they recognize the suspects in the video.
