Mandeville car burglars caught on camera

MANDEVILLE, LA (WVUE) - Mandeville Police are looking for a man and woman who they say are responsible for breaking into five cars early Monday morning.

"Among the things that were taken were some electronics, a laptop, cellular phone, some cash. There was also a credit card," said Capt. Gerald Sticker.

The break-ins happened in the Magnolia Ridge neighborhood. A neighbor tells us, for the most part, it's quiet in his subdivision, but being in the security business, he knows you can never be too careful.

"I hear all kinds of things that go on, a little bit more than what the public would like to know," said neighbor Kris Sepulveda, "I have security cameras and that's, I think, the number one thing that, you know, helps deter at least. Of course keeping the car locked, not leaving it unlocked, people feel a little too safe."

Police say they may be closer to catching the two after the stolen credit card was used at a store on the south shore.

"As we speak, I have detectives following up on those leads, and hopefully we will get some better images than what we already have. So we're on it and we're working every angle that we have right now to solve that case," Sticker said.

In the meantime, police are asking neighbors to make sure their doors are locked and if anyone has any information about the suspects, call Mandeville Police at (985) 626-9711.
