Two men caught on camera breaking into cars

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Moultrie police are looking for two men caught on camera breaking into cars and taking several items at a Moultrie apartment complex. They are hoping more footage of the two men breaking into cars will lead to an arrest.

It's unknown right now how many cars the two men have broken into. Moultrie police hope you can help them identify the thieves, seen in the video and put them behind bars.

Surveillance video from the Pineland Apartment complex in Moultrie shows a man sitting down in the parking lot outside of the leasing office around 1:30 Monday morning. He's waiting for his partner to finish breaking into a vehicle across the street.

"There was two black males,” said Inv. Raul Leal, Moultrie Police Department. “They went into the parking lot and went through three vehicles."

Then the two men make their way over to two other vehicles, checking to see if they are unlocked. Investigators say at least two of the vehicles were unlocked.

"It only took them about 10 or 15 minutes,” said Leal. “Especially with vehicles unlocked it's pretty easy just to go and take what they want."

The men got away with a wallet, sunglasses, a Gucci Bag and some checks. Another angle from the video shows the men walking away. Police say they dropped a check to the ground and other items that they didn't want. One of the checks was returned to its owner. Investigators are hoping additional surveillance video will help them catch the two crooks.

"There's different video angles,” said Leal. “We are waiting on that, maybe we can get a better shot of these guys and of course canvas the scene."

Just an hour earlier, the two men were caught on camera breaking into a Dodge Durango at a nearby home on 3rd Street Southeast, but they didn't take anything.

Police believe the two are in their early twenties and possibly live in the Pineland complex. They plan to use these pictures of the thieves to talk with residents on Tuesday, hoping someone will recognize them.

Moultrie police say it's important that you always lock your vehicles and don't leave valuable items in your car. They say if you recognize the two men to call the Moultrie Police Department.
