TULSA, Oklahoma -

A Tulsa man has crystal clear video of two men breaking into his home Saturday morning near 31st and Yale.

The family got security cameras about a year ago for home security. They pointed them towards the street during the fair because there are sometimes car break-ins, but what they caught Friday was something they said they never anticipated.

Video shows the men pull up to the house a little before 9:00 Friday morning. One of the passengers gets out, knocks on the door several times then leaves.

The video shows the car returns, this time the driver gets out, kicks in the front door then he and his passenger go inside.

Minutes later they come out carrying a flat screen TV.

Not only did they rip his TV off the wall, they also took his iPad, a change jar that was next to his bed and rifled through his wife's jewelry box.

"They pulled her jewelry box forward and apparently opened it and looked around," he said.

He was relieved to see he had caught the thieves on tape, so he posted it all over social media to let people in surrounding neighborhoods know.

"I was more angry than anything, but, I was so glad we had video because we have a chance to catch them," he said.

In the video, just moments before the burglars leave with their loot, you can see a silver car on the street, driving slowly, then, doing a U-turn.

He believes they were working with the burglars, maybe as a look-out. He hopes all of them go to jail.

"They're menace to the neighborhood, they're not gonna stop. They consider this their job, so there's no reason for them to be on the streets at all," he said.

Both he and police believe the video will be instrumental in getting the men caught, so if you recognize them or their car, call Crime Stoppers at 918-598-COPS.
