Local family is shaken after burglary was caught on video

A mother feels uncomfortable in her own home after a burglary occurred near Cactus Avenue and Bermuda Road.

The victims watched the break-in happen live on their phones. They set off the home alarm remotely and police were here at the home before they were.

In the surveillance video, you can see two guys shatter the glass sliding door. One looks like he's holding a phone, the other might be holding a weapon.

Once the alarm goes off, the criminals scatter.

After seeing the video and the mess that was left behind, it was hard for Michelle Gleason to sleep in her own home.

"They know right from wrong. I mean, we all know right from wrong, but they know right from wrong and they're wrong and I just hope they get caught," said Gleason.

Many things were taken, including a gun. The family keeps the gun for protection. It wasn't secured because no one was home. They're thinking that was a bad choice.

"I felt like oh my gosh here I am trying to be, I feel like, a better citizen and I feel like I was a worse citizen," said Gleason.

Gleason said it was hard re-watching the video of the burglary.
