Burglars caught on resident's surveillance cameras

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A group of burglars in Birmingham's Redmont neighborhood probably did not count on the eye in the sky catching them during a robbery.

The group of men did not realize they were were being taped on surveillance cameras set up in the neighborhood. Residents bought the cameras because they say they are are sick and tired of being targeted by criminals.

 "And we thought it would be a good deterrent for the criminals if they knew they were videoed and less likely to come to our street," said resident Tom Walker.

Police say it may be hard to make out the suspects faces, but they say you may recognize something else about them. Call Birmingham police if you have any information.
