MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Mobile Police said a local pastor's video surveillance cameras, installed throughout his home, captured two burglars in on Sunday.
Monday, April 1, Mobile Police department said the teen suspects were taken Strickland Youth Center thanks to that video.
"It's good to have eyes watching when you're not there at home to watch for yourself," said burglary victim James Hunter.
Hunter was preaching his Easter Sunday message at Apostolic Church of God while a few miles away, when police said his home on Cottrell Street was being burglarized.
"All my laptops, my computer my money, my boys, psp's, the games and all of those different things (were stolen)," said Hunter.
Hunter said his son was able to recognize one of the men in the video and it led an arrest.
I searched my surveillance cameras. They showed me everything that I needed to know. Faces, how many people it was, and it also helped the officers, make their job easier too," said Hunter.
Hunter said he believes his investment in his cameras have paid off. Officers were able to take the juveniles into custody, just hours after the burglary.
" It's frightening that you think that, you're serving God, you're doing the right thing and people always say we pray and ask God to protect us…but people in this world they don't care who you are. They will still do negative things towards you," said Hunter.
