LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A bizarre burglary caught on camera.

He sees the Ring doorbell camera, stops, walks away and gets in a car parked at the corner

Minutes later, another camera captures the same man pop through the home's window.

The man jumps right in and for the next four hours, he makes himself at home.

The homeowners declined to speak on camera, but said they were on vacation at the time.

"Everybody should be vigilant because that's the world we live in today"

Neighbors in the northwest like Cathy are appalled after hearing about what happened.

But one thing the homeowners are thankful for are neighbors keeping an eye.

One took photos of the vehicle the suspect may have used -- the silver car in the video -- and a possible accomplice.

That information has been sent to the police department, but has not been confirmed by police.

Cathy says at times like these it's important to know who's next door.

"We've all lived there from day one. If we know one of us is going to be away, we all look after each other. And we do house checks."
