JURUPA VALLEY (CBSLA.com) — Residents of a Jurupa Valley neighborhood are keeping a watchful eye out for a man who has been knocking out their home security cameras.
CBS2’s Tom Wait spoke to residents on the 7400 block of Pico Avenue who aren’t quite sure why they are being targeted.
It’s a story Only On CBS2.
Security camera video shows a man leave his pickup and make his way to a roof, where he rips a security camera from its position. The question is, why?
“You just don’t know what to think,” said Jeff Navigato, the homeowner.
“He had driven by one time and he saw the camera and backed up and came back, and that’s when he decided to disable the camera on the roof,” said Navigato.
The homeowner told Wait he’s stunned by the brazen nature of the crime.
The man knocked down the camera in the middle of the afternoon.
Navigato’s home wasn’t the only target.
A home just down the block was hit, too. The homeowner there says one security camera was stolen.
In both crimes, the same pickup was captured on video.
One damaged camera, another one stolen, but the thief didn’t take anything else. Now neighbors want to know why this happened. Or if the man will strike again. Bottom line, they’re now on the lookout.
“Obviously, we try to keep a lookout for any kind of activity that isn’t right and people stealing stuff,” said Navigato.
