Police say they are looking into a possible connection between a pair of home burglaries caught on camera that have spread all over social media.
Las Vegas police released three still photos of suspects who broke into a home near Cheyenne Avenue and Durango Drive Monday morning.
The video was first reported by Action News on Tuesday night.
In the video you can hear the glass door being broken before three men come into the home.
One of the men is heard saying “Metro Police Department” before they proceed to scour all of the rooms in the home.
They eventually left with a 55” television and a pillow case full of random items.
Although unconfirmed, police say they are looking into the possibility the men are the same suspects seen in a viral video following a similar break in just 24 hours later.
That video shows four men leaving a home near Lake Mead Boulevard and Rampart Boulevard.
Police confirmed a burglary happened at the home, and says investigations into both incidents are ongoing.
The owner of the first home burglarized says he immediately thought it was the same suspects in both videos.
He hopes all the attention on the video will lead to the suspects arrests and prevent them from burglarizing anyone else.
Anyone with information on the suspects are asked to call Las Vegas Metropolitan Police or Crime Stoppers (702) 385-5555.
