MERRICK - Merrick residents are hoping surveillance video will help track down the thieves who broke into several cars Monday morning.

The video, taken from Angela Iannacci’s home security cameras, shows a person in a hooded sweatshirt casually walking up their driveway and rifling through her car. She says the video shows three people slowly leaving the scene.

Jimmy Petrolekas, a neighbor, says thieves got into his Jeep around the same time, but they didn't get anything of value. Both admit they left their doors unlocked.
