Caught on camera: man breaks into home, getaway driver urinates in yard

SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Detectives in Bullitt County need the public's help looking for two people authorities call serial burglars. 

While the duo is primarily making off with jewelry and other items, investigators said the burglars also steal pillowcases from the homes and put their loot inside them.

It happened to a Shepherdsville man on Monday, February 20, and it was caught on camera.

"There's the male walking up," Sgt. Mike Murdoch with the Bullitt County Sheriff's Department said while showing the video to WAVE 3 News.

Deputies believe the man then gives the go ahead for his partner in crime to head up the driveway.

Detectives said he pries open a back door, and heads straight for the bedroom, taking off with jewelry and other items.

But what these crooks don't know is that their crime is caught on camera, just like last summer.

"Sometimes you feel like you have a big target on your back," the victim said.

One homeowner, who did not want to be identified, installed a home surveillance system a while back.

It caught three would-be burglars last summer, waving to the camera.  When the burglar alarm sounded, the trio dashed off.

But the same alarm didn't scare the two people last week.  Police say how comfortable the pair is leads them to believe the suspect have been doing this for a while.

In fact, the woman is so comfortable that she gets out of the car, undoes her pants, and urinates in the victim's yard -- all while talking on her cell phone.

"What got me is that she pulled up, parked, was still talking on her cell phone, got out, dropped her pants, and then did the deed right in the driveway. Luckily it wasn't the second deed. That would have been a mess," the homeowner said.

The video then shows the guy loading up the trunk.

"He throws the pillowcases full of jewelry boxes and then pulls out a yellow item that looks like a pry bar and they get in the vehicle and then leave," Sgt. Murdoch said.

And it's over in a blink of an eye.

"I believe the actual burglary took a minute-and-a-half to two minutes," Sgt. Murdoch said.

And that includes the woman's bathroom break.

From the surveillance video, police are able to tell the two are driving a gray, newer model Chevrolet Malibu with an Indiana license plate starting with 44.

If you see them or have any information, call the Bullitt County Sheriff Department at (502) 543-2514.
