Nassau police are investigating two larceny incidents that occurred in Seaford Thursday morning.
Detectives say three men believed to be in their mid-20s went in to unlocked cars on New York Avenue and Park Avenue and took a handbag from one of the vehicles.
Eric Richko told News 12 that surveillance video shared by officers came from his Ring camera and that he happened to be awake when it captured two of the men rummaging through his car.
"I was working late, and my Ring went off, and I almost didn't check it because in the rain it goes off at random. I quickly hit the alarm button, which is why they got spooked and ran off, " he explained.
Neighbors say they've been communicating through their Ring app and sharing similar video outside their homes within minutes of the incident at the Richkos.
"It is really brazen, especially with all of the technology that we have," said neighbor Jillian Lau. She said she was shown video of the men allegedly trying to get in to her car, but it was locked.
"It's dismaying, it's scary. You don't really know. It could be someone looking through your car or it could be someone looking for something else, to break in to your home," she added.
Richko said the suspects took an expired First Aid kit from his car.
If you have information about the larceny incidents, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
