    Caught this guy on my Starlight Thursday morning. I got lucky but he ended busting out a neighbors passenger window and stealing her purse. Sheriff's deputies said they've been after the same guy for a while now.

    He moves fast. Deputies say he steals a bike from the area and uses it to move house to house then dumps the bike.

    That dude has it all planned out. The guys in my neighborhood are not that advanced yet. That dude is covered from head to toe.

    It looks like he doesn't go for the car in the top left of the picture. Why? What's unattractive about that one, and what draws him to yours? Both offer easy access from the road. The car looks further from the road than your pickup. Car facing the other way? More likely to be tools etc. in the pickup? A thorn bush in the corner of the grass where he approaches the pickup would slow him down and make him reconsider the potential of your pickup if that is how you always park it.

    Not sure. Maybe because the truck offers some form of concealment whereas that small car would be pretty hard to duck behind. The truck used to be parked in the garage until I built my gym on my side. Of course I've been getting a million 'I told you so's from the wife.

    He looks in the truck before trying the door knob. I guess if he sees what he wants, the window is history. Hope you catch him, looks like his full time job.

    Amazing how a $5 dollar hat and $1 dollar bandana renders you security system useless for theft ID, they are getting smarter, even if you had a car alarm he would have been in and out before you could have got your eyes open from the sound of the alarm. What can a homeowner do? How about this? First he will eat the bad guy then turn on the homeowner and eat them too. Its coming!!!!

    Does the light on the garage wall mess with the camera's sensor?
    I have a similar mounting option.
    Did you block the camera side of the lamps glass to prevent lens flare on the camera?
    I want to mount my cam outboard to the light, but was thinking inboard (closer to garage door) to get better optics.
    Let me know please?

    The light will make the camera stay in color mode. Because I have so much light in the driveway and they're smart lights on a timer I have the camera in forced color mode at night. The carriage light you see does have black duct tape on the side of the glass facing the camera to reduce glare.

    Yup! That's why I don't keep much in my truck. Just glad he didn't think my backpack I use for work was worth anything. Would have busted my window for a stethoscope, safety vest, and a bunch of certification papers.

    Yes, I have been thinking of replacing my light fixture with one with a black out top, and then placing aluminum foil on the camera facing portion of the glass.

    Applaud this suspect's dedication to his dark craft. The higher tech we go to catch him, the lower tech he goes to defeat us! On his part he employs simple,low cost measures. He's virtually unidentifiable, he's fast, quiet, crafty, and physically capable to scram quickly (in any/all directions) if anyone challenges him. Although he will be tough to apprehend... for every 1 of him, there are many others who are easier to catch.
    I tip my hat to this guy. He has done his homework and executes cleanly.
