A Las Vegas family is repairing their home after a burglar broke their front door down and stole valuable possessions.
There was a security camera inside the doorbell and in broad daylight Friday, the suspect stared right into it.
He rang the doorbell, knocked on the door then noticed the camera and disabled it.
After that, the burglar kicked down the door and within ten minutes, the family says he made out with watches, credit cards, bottles of liquor and college football bowl game rings that belonged to the homeowner.
A repairman reattached the door Saturday while the family was inside, still in disbelief.
"You work hard for a living then you get crap like this," said Elaine Dixon, the homeowner's mother. "It's just sad, very sad and emotional because you're invaded. Your privacy has been invaded."
The home is in the Mountain's Edge community near Durango Drive and Blue Diamond Road.
Dixon says this is the third burglary on the block in the last month and a half.
