A thief commits an unusual crime, and takes the security cameras in the place of the Christmas gift-giving.

A California Christmas, a thief was caught on camera for stealing, the same surveillance equipment that has been installed in order to catch people like him.

The victim, who asked not to be identified, told KTVU that he was with his family on a vacation, when there is an alert on a smart phone at around 2:30 pm, told him that the veranda, the pirate had been spotted outside his door.

The footage shows a white sedan backing up on a street in Alameda, Calif., and then pull it out. A man in a blue jacket was seen leaving the car, climbing the stairs, walking past the two packages left on the porch, and instead of thieves, a home surveillance camera.

A few minutes later, he was back again, this time with a black box in his hands.

He was caught on camera giving himself a boost to the thief, and the theft of a second, Bing’s video camera. A third camera was out of reach, but it was not in the position to commit the crime.

The Alameda Police department, told KTVU that the crime was unusual, but warned that it would have been more of an attempt to handle and prepare the empty room for a future home break-in.

“It’s the point of having a camera is to prevent or deter this type of criminal activity.”

The camera’s owner, and his family cut short a holiday and returned home. They can share photos and videos, by the police, and didn’t say anything else than that the two cameras were taken into account.

“We want to provide a safe and secure environment, and we encourage people to bring cameras,” McMullen said. “The last thing we want is them to be stolen.”
