Albany-  A bold thief targeted an electrician's house. He stole copper wire in the middle of the day, and the victims hope you can help catch him.

Amy and Wayne Reno caught the thief on their own surveillance video. Take a look at the suspect as he makes his way between his car and the Reno's backyard six times.

The Renos took that video to Albany Police and Southeastern Aluminum who told the couple 21 year old Brandon Merritt sold them the wire for 102 dollars Tuesday. They hope you know where Merritt is and will call police and turn him in.

"He's a threat. He's a threat to our neighborhood, we have children in the neighborhood. I'm afraid to go outside, if he can come to my house in the middle of the day and be bold enough to come in our backyard, something's got to be done," said Amy Reno.

The Renos were targeted last year by two thieves who were later arrested. Albany police have take warrants for Merritt's arrest.
