AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – The search is on for two men accused of breaking into the same home in Aurora three times.

Max Parker, 82, drives and has a full time job. After his home was burglarized two different times he decided to install four security cameras in case the crooks returned. They did, and this time he was able to get clear images of them.

In the incidents the burglars broke through Parker’s door.

“They broke the whole thing out — the molding and everything,” he told CBS4.

Parker says they stole cameras, computers, jewelry and alcohol.

“I’ll tell you what, if I ever thought about doing it as a kid I’d be dead. My dad would not have put up with it for 10 seconds,” Parker said.

Police in Aurora hope anyone with information about who the thieves are will contact them. Parker said he’s sure they are local residents, and he thinks they have been watching his house.

The crimes all happened during the day, and each time Parker wasn’t home.

“It was just like they knew more about my house than I did,” Parker said.

In the last incident, the suspects left the house just as Parker pulled up in his driveway.

“They moved like a deer. When they saw me turn around in the car, man, I tell you they were moving,” he said.

Anyone with information about the crimes is asked to contact Aurora police or Crimestoppers.
