Rosenberg police release surveillance video after several car break-ins


It wasn't the way Jeremy Forks expected to start his Saturday morning: a knock from Rosenberg police at the door.

"They said, 'We regret to inform you, you're truck has been broken into,'" Forks said.

He took a closer look at the damage to his F350 truck that had been ransacked.

"My passenger-side window was busted out, so glass all over the place. Immediately saw my console was up in the truck," Forks said.

But it's the $200 in damage that will cost him more than what was taken. The thieves only got $2 in quarters from inside, leaving other valuables behind.

It was all captured on a surveillance video camera the family had installed, because this wasn't the first time they've been targeted. He says they started to look at his wife's car, and for some reason, moved on to his truck.

"He's wearing gloves. It's hard to tell from the video footage but he is wearing gloves," Forks said.

In the video, you can see him going in through the passenger side of Fork's vehicles. A second person, possibly a female, is also seen in the top left corner of the video.

Rosenberg police say the Forks weren't the only victims. More than a half dozen were targeted in the area.

And the Forks hope what they captured on video pays off for everyone in the neighborhood.

"Somebody knows who it is so it's just a matter of someone making that phone call. There's a lot of characteristics of the person in the footage that can be easily picked up," Forks said.

If you think you recognize the man in the video, you're asked to call Rosenberg police at 832-595-3700 or Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS. You can also message Rosenberg police on their Facebook page.

Tipsters can remain anonymous.
