In Bloomfield, New Jersey, a Jonathan Paredes, a tenant, was able to catch his neighbor breaking into his apartment through his home security system. The intruder, a 28-year-old woman who lives one floor above Paredes’ apartment, was caught rummaging through his things as well as stealing cash and goods through his security camera. According to Paredes, the woman would steal the cash and goods and then carefully put other items on their rightful place to ward suspicions. He does not even have any idea how long the woman was stealing from him. Since his security system was connected to his smartphone, Paredes watched the break-in from his phone at work and was able to report the break-in to the police.
In West Covina, California, Bob Wang was also able to catch the burglars who broke into his house through his security camera. According to him, he just went for a grocery and went home to see his house ransacked and his security cameras destroyed. The burglars sure went to extreme measures not to be identified, putting his security cameras, computer, and even printer under running water to ensure that they will short-circuit and will not work anymore. However, the burglars missed another security camera in the homeowner’s bedroom, which captured their images. Using the images, the burglars were captured and turned over to the police.
