Two Hooligans Caught Breaking into Cars in Rome
Do you recognize this man? He and his buddy may be responsible for the string of car break-ins in Rome. A security camera caught them searching through cars.
Ricky Magoon, who lives at 225 Panesi Avenue in Rome, caught the men searching his and his wife's car Sunday night November 19th around 11. "One went in my car. He is clearly visible. The other went into hers. This is the third time I caught them on camera. The other 2 times I caught them in neighbor's cars with the cameras and my own eyes."
I feel horribly violated knowing someone is rifling through my belongings. I just wanna see them get caught and brought to justice before they steal from someone that can't afford to recover from the theft
A security camera is set up to catch several angles outside Magoon's home but he says they don't watch the video all the time. The hooligans made it easy. "We only noticed because one left the glove box open in her car."
The recent car break-ins has the Rome Police Department reminding everyone to lock their cars. "We've had a few complaints of vehicles rummaged through during the overnight hours. Most issues can simply be prevented by locking your vehicle," says police.
Ricky says they usually do lock their cars but just forgot that day. "We just had a moment that day, bringing the kids in the house from the store and forgot."
Magoon says luckily there was nothing in their cars to be stolen but it's still disturbing. "I feel horribly violated knowing someone is rifling through my belongings. I just wanna see them get caught and brought to justice before they steal from someone that can't afford to recover from the theft."
Items in cars aren't the only thing being stolen in Rome. A woman is caught on camera stealing a holiday flag out of someone's front yard. The home owner found the thief and the flag was returned.
