(Scroll down for video) A family in England, released a video of the moment a thief realizes that he has been caught on surveillance video.
The thief was left with an open mouth as he stared into the lens for several seconds, seemingly unable to decide what to do.
Despite being caught on video for 20 seconds, the thief tried to hide from the camera mounted on the wall by ducking out of sight, and removed the lens from the wall and took it with him when he left.
Unbeknown to the thief, his efforts were useless because the footage was stored online as is was recording.
30-year-old Phi Chong of Daventry, Northamptonshire, said that he ordered the high-tech surveillance video from the United States, and installed it in his parents’ home after the home has been broken into and burglarized a few months ago.
Police are looking for the man, and are asking anyone who knows the thief to call them.
The family was devastated when the thief stole jewelry, which their deceased brother, Vay Chong, left for his unborn child.
“My brother died and left a gold necklace and Buddha amulet. This was intended for his unborn child. He is having a boy and it was meant to be a gift from him,” Phi said.
