La Mirada car prowler caught on video

La Mirada- Images of a young man that is believed to have taken a wallet from an unlocked vehicle parked in the driveway of a La Mirada residence overnight early Sunday was captured on home security video.  

The crime on this video was captured on a Ring security system about 1:20 a.m. at a home in the area of La Fortuna Dr. and La Fonda Dr. which is just north of the Post Office.

The suspect can be seen checking door handles on two other cars in the driveway in an apparent attempt to find one unlocked.

Advances in the home security system marketplace have raised awareness of how common these crimes appear to be in the area.
