One month before her wedding, Shannon Montgomery was shocked to wake up and find both her car and her fiance's car were missing. 

"It's an absolute nightmare," said Montgomery.

Surveillance video from her neighbors on Cardiff Way, east of Boynton Lakes Boulevard, shows the alleged thief walking into the neighborhood shortly after 3 a.m. 

"You can see him checking almost every car," said Montgomery.

He's seen rummaging through a neighbor's car, then moves onto another. Montgomery says when he got to her car he found a spare key to her fiance's Volkswagen Passat. He leaves and then comes back and takes the car. 

"Thinking that I'm in the house sleeping while all of this is going on," added Montgomery. 

But he wasn't done yet. Fast forward the surveillance video and he comes back and takes her car too.

"It's just disrespect," said Prescot Mnguni who lives a few houses away.

He and other neighbors offered their surveillance video to Montgomery and her fiance. He hopes as a neighborhood they can work together to catch the thief.

"I don’t know yet what to do, but hopefully we will do something," added Mnguni.

Montgomery has forwarded all of the surveillance video to detectives. Anyone with information on these car thefts should call Boynton Beach Police.
