Video camera helps capture elderly cat-burglar in Lawrence

VAN BUREN COUNTY (WKZO) -- It seems everyone has video cameras these days. It came in handy for a Lawrence man who kept losing money and couldn’t figure out where it was going or who was taking it.

$120 disappeared from his pants last Saturday night. Then again on Wednesday night, another $400 disappeared.

Friday night he put $55 in his pocket and set up a video camera.

It captured a 74-year-old man he knew, slip in through the kitchen door while his wife watched TV just 20-feet away, go through his wallet and then leave.

A few minutes later, his wife let out the dog and then went to bed.

Deputies arrested the man Saturday at his home on 48th Avenue.

He had apparently taken the cash and gone straight to the Four Winds Casino in Hartford.

He was arrested for first degree home invasion, and may face additional charges after the prosecutor reviews the investigator's report.
