Security Camera Captures Home Invasion

A woman was held hostage as three criminals stole her belongings

A security camera inside a woman’s home in Kansas captured footage of her being held in a chokehold while criminals stole some of her belongings. According to reports, a trusted friend of the woman was set to sell some carpentry tools, and instead she and two other people forced their way inside the home and stole the tools.

All three can be seen in the video, where they took money, tools and a safe. The cameras were installed three months ago when the owner of the home hired a nanny.

"I have nanny cams from March because I had a nanny I was kind of worried about. It goes to my phone. I can watch it live, and it records, and I can watch it on any computer ... my phone as long as I have Wi-Fi" she said. "I just feel dumb for letting them in my house."
