Suspected Knock-Knock Burglars Caught on Video

WEST COVINA, Calif. (KTLA) — A West Covina man says he’s captured video of a gang of suspected knock-knock burglars at work in his neighborhood.

“I noticed that the glass from the door and then the actual door frame was broken,” victim Richard Reyes explained, showing the damage.

Four burglars broke into his home only four days after he moved in.

They got away with iPads and jewelry. “They even took two Newcastles out of the fridge,” Reyes added.

But what these thieves didn’t count on was his watchful neighbor Dean Wiley recording their every move.

“She just sits there for about a minute or so,” Wiley explained, showing KTLA video of a female suspects on his front porch.

“Now she’s looking in my window making sure no one’s home here so they have free range of this whole street.”

Wiley says he installed surveillance cameras because it’s not the first time the suspected criminals have struck.

Just last February, with different tenants, the same home on West Robindale Street was hit. In the latest crime, on Tuesday, Wiley got a good look.

West Covina police detectives are looking for possibly five suspects — three men and two women.

The suspects were last seen driving a silver car, possibly a Honda. If you have any information, you’re asked to contact West Covina police.
