PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- A home burglary took place in Phoenix, and all of it got clearly captured on video. 

Around 2:20 p.m. on Monday, July 29, a man vividly caught on surveillance camera breaking in and burglarizing a Phoenix home in the area of 30th Street and Topeka Drive, near Union Hills Drive.

[RAW VIDEO: Phoenix home invader caught on camera]

In the surveillance footage, it almost looks like the home intruder is looking right into the camera.

With a shovel in his hand, he takes a couple of things from the home and wipes his fingerprints off the doorknob.

After, he flees the scene in a stolen, white Toyota Tacoma later recovered by the police.

The suspect is described as a white man who could be 18 to 20 years old with medium length dark hair, brown eyes and a mole on his right cheek.

Am I the only one that noticed that this pos WAS holding a lethal weapon when he entered the residence? Hellooo? what do you think he was planning on doing with that SHOVEL when /if confronted? [rolleyes]


Nah, he's white o'right!


Lol @ crime stats. Bet he's a fellow lib too, perhaps you recognize him from the last Antifa circle je*k.

desertdao he smells just like you after you both had your heads up your orange baboon Prez's rear end.

Oh Lord, I can't help myself at all. I apologize![ohmy]

StanIey Trump

I am sooooo sorry! I don't know what is wrong with me. I am not myself lately. Too much blow up my nose I think. Doggone it.

StanIey Trump

Now excuse me, My pee pee needs a stroke.


Another flat brimmed douche flute smoking dumb a$$... Look for the smoke that smells like Captain crunch and a wanna be mma fighter and you'll find this low life

The man in the video is of Hispanic ethnicity, not Caucasian. Might as well be accurate with the description. His thin bone structure, small height, gaunt features and facial bone structure are of a Hispanic.


2nd story in a row about a white criminal action.

Bruce has a fetish for white men, he’s always on the lookout for them

StanIey Trump

Of course, I have a fetish for any man. Just ask Brucie, my boyfriend'[love]


They say don't judge a book by its cover, but then you seen surveillance pics and you feel justified in doing so.


And- you're saying the video just confirmed your assumptions? And you're justified in assuming you know before you know anything (which is pretty much the case at this moment)? If true, I don't need to ask why your parents named you that.


The hat, hair, and shirt. Look at the details. He looks like a tool, and here he is proving it. I'm saying it would be hard for me to think much seeing the dude on the street, the vid doesn't surprise me. Not a habit I'm fond of, but not unlike neck tattoos. In this case, judgement doesn't need to be reserved.


Once a thief , allways a thief . Give him a quick, speedy , cheap death . As the world will allways have thieves amoungst you . [censored]


So you want more murders? Will the world always have thieves and murderers, or will the murders stop when the thieves are done away with and nobody reproduces anymore?


Less theft would be super. More home invaders, a situation that has serious potential for both perp and victim, getting smoked by the homeowner would probably lead to less of this. How do you know this rat didn't have a weapon, and how do you know his intent if he'd been confronted?


Im thinking the shovel prob was not for digging in this case but for a possible weapon in case someone was home? Hard to say really.

Your posts are always dumb

StanIey Trump

Oh I just love Ron Jeremy. He is such a studmuffin![love]


Need to start hanging this pos along with the pedophiles there’s no room for them here on this planet .


How does that work when they don't know who it is? Good grief I hope your handle is a self-inflicted honor.

JF Conlon

Nice turn of phrase.


What an obnoxious detractor. Obviously no one is getting punished until they figure out who it is. Why are you so bent on defending a criminal?

Stanley Trump

Nuusmaan is a seriously obnoxious troll. His posts are always dumb and make no sense. No doubt he’s a liberal little man.
