HOUSTON, Texas - A home surveillance video shows a burglar peering at a sleeping baby in a Houston, Texas home.
The family had no idea the thief was even inside their home until a neighbor found something odd.
The surveillance video shows the burglar lurking around a baby's bedroom with a flashlight at 5 a.m. 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.
This is the 2-and-half-year-old boy who was in that crib.
Homeowner Thrinh Le said the scary part is he didn't even know someone had broken into their 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 said 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 Le's items behind.
When that homeowner woke up the next morning, he found Le's briefcase and wallet.
He called Le and said check your cameras.
"My stomach was turning. I was really upset what happened," said Le.
The burglar was bold because Le said he knew he was being recorded.
"He looked up at some of the cameras, and he made some statement that, 'I don't care,'" said Le.
The family has an alarm system but said they forgot to set it.
