UPDATE: Action News Crime and Safety expert Randy Sutton weighed-in on the story. Check out his interview above.
 
ORIGINAL STORY:
 
Shocking surveillance video shows two people breaking into several cars along a street last night in a neighborhood near Blue Diamond and Fort Apache roads.
 
Someone darts to a black SUV, but they can't get in so they quickly run off.
 
Behind them, a white SUV drives slowly because another thief remains behind. Then he bolts from the other side of a truck.
 
Another camera catches the first person continuing on to another car. He appears to break in.
 
His partner in crime follows and tries to get inside a white sedan, unsuccessfully.
 
Action News spoke one of the homeowners on the block whose car was broken into.
 
“Little disturbing for how early it was in the evening, you know? 9:30? I just got home at 9 p.m. and you have somebody 20 or 30 minutes behind you and then doing what we see them doing," said Jeff Sarachman.
 
The community plans to meet next week and discuss ways to increase security in the neighborhood.
