DENVER (CBS4) – Police in Denver have issued a warrant for the arrest of a man who they say is the criminal captured on a home surveillance camera system stealing thousands of dollars worth of items from a resident’s garage along with an accomplice.
Authorities identified Richard Page after viewing video that Danny Stroud’s security system captured. Stroud’s security system includes a series of cameras that are are connected to a WiFi system.
Page, 33, is allegedly one of the two people who is seen in Stroud’s garage milling about with flashlights and collecting items to steal in the video. Stroud was sleeping while the crime took place.
“It scared the bejesus out of me because in part of the video the guy thinks about coming into the house,” Stroud said.
Police said about $6,000 of items were stolen from Stroud. They also think the two suspects are linked to numerous burglaries in the Denver area.
“The guys are bold. The car was parked in driveway, they knew people were in the house and they just came in and did it. That’s a recipe for disaster,” Stroud said.
Authorities shared video with CBS4 that shows items from a storage unit that was tracked back to Page. In the video officers are at the storage center reviewing evidence outside the unit, including tools, electronics and liquor. They say that evidence is part of a building case against Page and his accomplice.
“That takes a lot of time to catalog that and figure out ownership and work backward figure out where each piece came from. So that’s where the investigation is at this point,” Denver Police Sgt. Steve Warneke said.
Page has a rap sheet of arrests for theft, drugs and other crimes.
Anyone with information about where Page might be, or anyone who can identify the second person seen in the home security video, is asked to contact Crimestoppers.
