Caught in the Act

Homeowners fighting holiday Grinch with security cameras

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

FOX10 News is committed to helping catch criminals who are caught in the act. Mobile Police say this is the time of year thieves like to target homes.

Over the past few days, we’ve reported on at least two incidents where belongings were swiped from front porches.

“There are people that are just driving around looking for an opportunity to take somebody’s Christmas,” said Mobile Police Chief Lawrence Battiste. “To be a Grinch to somebody.”

We report on these crimes every year, but now more than ever, the victims are starting to fight back with cameras. Many homeowners are buying do-it-yourself security systems to help catch thieves.

If you have any video or photos of someone caught in the act, we want to see them. Email them to fox10reportit@fox10tv.com.
