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.
