Home thefts are very common in some areas of the U.S. Millions of things are stolen right out on peoples homes because of these thieves. Most people don't even get what was stolen back. Even though neighborhoods are patrolled by cops the thief still gets away with the stolen item(s). Sometimes though cameras catch the thieves at work and they are reported, caught, sent to jail, and the homeowner gets their belonging(s) back.
