A man who allegedly stole a safe from a home being fumigated on June 25, 2020 is shown in photos provided by the Ventura Police Department on July 7, 2020.

A man was caught on home video last month stealing $20,000 and personal items from a home in Ventura that was being fumigated, police said Tuesday.

The incident occurred about 1 a.m. June 25 at a home along the 9500 block of Las Cruces Street.

The man allegedly broke into the home and stole a safe containing the cash, citizenship papers, jewelry and antiques, police said in a tweet.

Authorities also shared two images of the man, apparently from home surveillance video.

The man is seen wearing a heavy-duty mask to protect himself from the fumes inside the house.

Anyone with information about the incident can call the Ventura Police Department at 805-339-4416.
