WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - A burglary suspect who police say stole a Ring device from a home in Northwest D.C. was still captured by the device’s camera - and by additional security cameras that were installed at the property.
The incident was reported around 7 p.m. August 19 in the 3500 block of Edmunds Street. Images show the man dressed in a yellow vest holding what appears to be a garden shovel and a tablet device.
Police say he stole a child’s book bag that was outside of the home before removing the Ring device that was secured to the exterior wall of the house.
