June 5th wasn‘t the first time someone broke into Creighton Guillory’s vehicles, but he hopes it was the last.
“It’s very frustrating because like I said, when you look on video and see these guys going into your stuff, the stuff you worked for“ said Guillory.
Guillory said over the last two years, thieves have been caught on camera, targeting neighbors in the Meadows of Chaleur subdivision. Surveillance video shows the thieves helpibg themselves to things that don’t belong to them.
“He jarred the door pretty much, like a red mark on the door, but he pried it open with something and so forth and went in and stole some backpacks, some beat headphones out of the back seat“ said Baker resident, Van Moore.
Last week, a man wearing a hoodie walked onto Guillory’s property, went inside a car and took a wallet then ran away.
“True enough she left the car unlocked and so did I, when he got in my truck but that still doesn’t give him the right to come back here on private property and get into it“ said Guillory.
Neighbors say, they are now taking action by putting more eyes on the street and more cameras on their homes.
“We need to be more vigilant. First of all, I’m nosey Madea so if I see you in the subdivision and I’m not familiar with your face and you’re a young person for sure, I will say, do you live over here“ said Diana Knighten.
Knighten said, she’s praying the senseless acts end before they turn bad.
“Come over to my house and you’re going to meet my nine disciples and that’s just the way it’s going to be.“
