Security camera catches car invaders in 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.



No arrests have been made.
