HANCOCK COUNTY (WISH) —  Investigators arrested a 23-year-old man, and say they identified another suspect after a Hancock County home burglary last week.

It’s a crime the homeowner caught on camera.

Hancock County detectives say they arrested Tyler Daniels of Indianapolis, and say they know who the other suspect is but haven’t charged him yet.

Dustin Davis says his Greenfield home was broken into last week during the day, and his daughter was the first one to walk in the house after getting home from school.

“The computer was on the floor; I saw glass everywhere, and the back door was open,” said Trinity Davis. She said she ran back outside and called her dad, who told her to run to a neighbor’s house while he rushed home.

Turns out, the suspects weren’t there anymore, but their images were everywhere, the family says: on their home surveillance video.

“In this day and age, I just wanted a video system with an alarm system. We’ve had a few instances around here, and I just didn’t want them to happen anymore. It made my family feel a lot safer,” said Dustin Davis.

From the moment the burglars ran up the stairs in their home, to the moment they took a TV, to the moment one of the suspects realizes he’s on video, and covers up his face.

It’s all documented.

“We’re thankful no one got hurt. I don’t care what’s in your house, that is irreplaceable,” said Davis.

The Davis’ say their son could see that his X-box was online, and say the suspects took it to a pawn shop, which they say also helped police identify the suspects.

Davis says police were able to retrieve a lot of their items that were taken, worth thousands of dollars.

He says he would recommend video surveillance to any homeowner.

“It’s absolutely worth the peace of mind,” said Davis.
