GREEN, Ohio - Clear surveillance video captured by a home security system in Green could be the key to tracking down a couple of burglary suspects.
The video, showing two unidentified men stealing power tools from a garage on Massillon Road on May 28, was released by the Summit County Sheriff's Department on Monday.
According to Inspector Bill Holland, one of the suspects forced entry into the garage while the other backed the vehicle up to the garage.
The video shows the men placing several items into a tan, Mercury Sable, which has damage on the rear driver's side door.
They took off with a chainsaw, two mitre saws, two air compressors, a gas welder, a rifle and other tools.
The homeowner, Richard Wiley, has shared images of the suspects on Facebook, hoping to receive tips that will lead to their arrests.
"I just have wonder how dumb you can be because basically when they took the sawzall, the TV camera for the monitor for the camera is in the garage in the very corner, and to bend over to pick up the sawzall, they literally would have had to almost hit their head on the monitor," Wiley said.
Anyone with information on the crime, should call Summit County Crimestoppers at 330-434-COPS. Tipsters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $2,000.
