ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany man said his surveillance system captured two men stealing a bike from his East Albany home. 

One of them ran off with a BMX bike.

Daniel Sciulli said he hopes the video will help identify the crooks. 

Sciulli said this isn't the first time the he's been a victim of crime in his neighborhood. 

"I mean, you get frustrated with this happening over and over," said Sciulli.  "At what point does it end?"

Sciulli said he's fed up with the amount of crime in the neighborhood where he grew up and where he now raises a family. 

"I love this area," he said. "I don't want to move. I don't want to let this scare me off, or scare my wife, or anyone around me." 

But he admits that they feel uneasy after knowing that two men were on their property on Edgerly Avenue.

"They went through my greenhouse.  I guess they took some fishing rods and stole one bike out of our shed," Sciulli said.  "They were trying to get more bikes, but they were spooked and just took off running."

Luckily, Sciulli had installed cameras after crooks had previously stolen a car from his property and broken into his shed.  

"Putting these cameras out there and putting these videos out there of what people are doing, maybe it might curb some of this behavior," explained Sciulli. "That's what I'm hoping." 

He said he wants to see an end to the crime that he believes has taken over what used to be a quiet neighborhood. 

"He might have gotten a $20 bike.  It cost me more, but to him it may be $20. I'm sure that that's not worth any time in jail," said Sciulli.  "Because that's just time that you're not moving forward in your life."

If you recognize these men or have any information, call Albany police or Crime Stoppers.
