Video captures burglar sneaking into nursery, home

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) – April 5, just after 5 a.m., as the family of three sleeps, an intruder sneaks around, hovering over what's most important.

"I was infuriated when I saw him walking back and forth in my baby's room," Thinh Le said.

He shines the flashlight throughout the room and even on the sleeping child. This is edited video provided by the Harris County Sheriff's Office, but father Thinh Le says at one point the two make eye contact and then the little boy goes back to sleep.

Cameras are mounted throughout the house, and Le says the burglar knew it but didn't care.

The family actually didn't know about the break-in until a neighbor found their laptop and briefcase and returned it. Le reviewed his surveillance video and found the creepy images.

Investigators believe the intruder is a teenager. He got in through an unlocked first floor window, stole only $60 but also peace of mind -- his son is his world.

Other homes were burglarized in the same neighborhood around the same time.

Authorities are asking anyone who recognizes the person in the surveillance video to contact them.
