(Scroll down for video) Police are looking for a man who ripped out security cameras from a home.
The California thief used gloves when he stole the two surveillance videos from outside the home in Harbor City, Los Angeles.
However, while doing so, the camera recorded a clear photo of the suspect’s face.
Los Angeles Police Detective Don Eldridge said that detectives are taking the steps to find the thief, but admitted that thanks to the images, their job should be easier.
Police have released the photo of the suspect in order to get help from the public to identify the thief before he strikes again.
The homeowner said that she recently installed the surveillance cameras because there was an increase in crime in her neighborhood.
