Home surveillance footage catches car vandals in the act

A home surveillance camera caught this image on October 30th.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Car vandals were caught on video during the early morning hours of October 30 on the west side of Indianapolis. Now, the victims are trying to make sure it doesn’t happen again to them or anyone else.

The victims released the surveillance footage to 24-Hour News 8 in hopes that someone may recognize those responsible for raiding their vehicle.

“I think people are getting more bold and brazen in what they do,” the victim said.

The home surveillance video shows three men walking by, one breaks away, casually opens the car door and makes himself comfortable.

“I feel violated. I have fingerprints all over and my car is ransacked and then I have a sister who lives next door and she has the same thing on her video and it’s awful,” she said.

The woman didn’t want to show her face on camera, but wanted the footage to be seen.

“I think if we expose this on different social media, Facebook, or whatever it may be, maybe somebody can recognize these guys and try to help stop this,” she said.

She and her husband already had several cameras and lighting systems in place, but now they’re upgrading.

“We decided to get more and more video and lights and stuff, because it’s becoming bad,” she said.

They also have a security system for their home, but she still worries about her safety.

“I don’t think they walked far. I think they’re closer than what we think, so it could be right in our general neighborhood,” she said.

That’s why she says more people need to get involved.

“I just hope everybody comes together and helps us get this figured out. I really do,” she said.

This same family had their car broken into while it was locked in June. They believe it was the same people last week.

If you recognize one of the people in the video, you can always report that information to IMPD anonymously by calling 262-TIPS.
