PORTSMOUTH-A security recorded a man walking up to the porch of a Portsmouth house and walk off with lawn equipment.
Police say the camera was hidden, so the man didn't know he'd be caught in the act.
It happened just before 1:00 p.m. on June 5 at a house on Maryland Avenue in the Port Norfolk neighborhood.
The residents had taken a lunch break and were inside the home at the time when the man walked off with two large weed eaters with a value of about $600.00.
Police believe he's 25-30 years old and about six feet tall. At the time, he was wearing light-colored pants, a striped, short sleeve shirt and dark shoes.
Anyone who can help police identify the man or has information about the theft should call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP
