Hollywood police released surveillance video on Thursday, Aug. 4, 2016, of a July 9 home burglary. Home surveillance cameras captured images of the man prying open a window and leaving with a bag of money and jewelry valued at $4,000.

After trying to get into a Hollywood home through one window and failing, he tried a second.

This time he used a tool from his pocket to pry it open.

The whole time the cameras rolled.

On Thursday, Hollywood police released surveillance video of the July 9 burglary of a home in the 100 block of North 31st Avenue. Police say he got away with $4,000 in cash and jewelry.

A white-haired man, wearing his baseball cap backwards, can be seen calmly walking through the porch to a window. He peeks inside, but realized he didn’t fit through the window.

The last video clip shows the man leaving with a red bag.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Hollywood Police Department at 954-764-4357 or 954-967-4411 or Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477).
