Burglar Caught On Baby Monitor http://www.kristv.com/news/burglar-caught-on-baby-monitor/ http://www.kristv.com/news/burglar-caught-on-baby-monitor/ Caught On Camera Wed, 16 Apr 2014 3:38:20 AM Burglar Caught On Baby Monitor

HOUSTON- Police in Houston are looking for a burglary suspect who broke into a home.

The family had no idea the thief was even inside their home, until a neighbor found something odd.

What they found next on their home security footage was even scarier.

Surveillance video of a burglar lurking around a baby's bedroom with a flashlight at 5:00 o'clock in the morning.

He even shines the light on the little boy who was soundly sleeping in his crib.

It's unclear what he's looking for, but these chilling images made the child's parents sick to their stomachs.

The scary part is he didn't even know someone had broken into their West Harris County home until the next day.

He and his wife were asleep in the master bedroom when the intruder came in through an unlocked front window.

Surveillance cameras all over the house show the burglar going from room to room looking for things to steal.

Police say he stole a briefcase and a wallet, then went and broke into a house around the block.

When the burglar left that house, he left Lee's items behind.

When that homeowner woke up the next morning, he found Lee's briefcase and wallet.

He called Lee and said check your cameras.

And the burglar is bold. Lee says he knew he was being recorded.

Lee cares and so do investigators. They're now looking for him. They believe he's just a teenager.

The family does have an alarm system, but say in this one particular night, they forgot to set it.

Professor Lucky To Be Alive When Cement Truck Slams Into His Van http://www.kristv.com/news/professor-lucky-to-be-alive-when-cement-truck-slams-into-his-van/ http://www.kristv.com/news/professor-lucky-to-be-alive-when-cement-truck-slams-into-his-van/ Caught On Camera Wed, 9 Apr 2014 4:33:27 AM Professor Lucky To Be Alive When Cement Truck Slams Into His Van

COLLEGE STATION - A Texas A&M veterinary professor is very fortunate to have escaped serious injury or even death yesterday when a cement truck tipped on its side and slammed into the professor's car in College Station.

And Dr. Guan Zhu, believe it or not had a dash camera that he had installed about a year ago in case he was ever involved in a crash.

Police say the driver of the cement truck ran the red light at Wellborn Road and Rock Prairie, and then tried to take evasive action to miss vehicles already in that intersection.

The truck crossed into oncoming traffic on Wellborn, tipped on its side, and slammed into Professor Zhu's minivan.

Fortunately Zhu was not seriously injured. And when he later looked at his dash cam video, he was amazed.

He says the airbags deployed and he only got a small cut on his leg. The dash cam was also still intact.

The driver of the cement truck also was not seriously injured, but police gave him a ticket. It took crews several hours to clean up spilled cement.

OKLAHOMA - A Chickasha woman was arrested after going on a wild ride through busy streets.

One man, who had a dashboard camera installed in his personal vehicle, captured the entire thing on video.

A speeding vehicle raced into the wrong lane and ended up hitting two other trucks.

Officers say that once they arrested the driver, Virginia Smith, she began screaming at them and even assaulted one of them after he asked her to take a field sobriety test.

Authorities say Smith is also facing a charge of "threatening to perform an act of violence."

Once she was taken into custody, she reportedly made her hand into the shape of a gun, pointed at an officer, and yelled, "bang, bang, bang, you're dead."

This is not Smith's first run in with the police.

Previously, she has been charged with eluding a police officer, writing bogus checks, and driving under the influence.

GEORGIA - Police say a man was arrested after breaking into a home while wearing nothing but a cowboy hat in Johns Creek, Georgia.

Cori Davenport heard her daughter scream.

And when she came downstairs, she found Ashton Gibbs in her kitchen in his birthday suit.

Police say he tried to steal a motorcycle from their driveway before coming inside.

The family's surveillance cameras caught the whole thing.

But that was just the end of his day.

Police say his alleged crime spree started when he stole a car Monday morning and it just got weirder from there.

Gibbs didn't waste any time getting comfortable in Johns Creek.

Lt. Chris Byers, Johns Creek PIO, said, "in one of the houses he did break in to, he did consume a beer while he was there and he made himself a meal and watched baseball on their television."

Gibbs wouldn't tell police why he took his clothes off, or even how he got so far wearing so little.

The charges Gibbs is facing including burglary, criminal trespass and a count of impersonating a police officer.
