YUKON, Oklahoma -

Some Yukon neighbors hope surveillance video helps catch a thief.

Cameron Whaley installed surveillance cameras at his Yukon home after his truck was broken into several times. One morning this week, he noticed footsteps in the grass leading to his truck so he checked his recordings.

Around 4:30 a.m. he saw a person walking up to his truck and shine a flashlight inside.

"It's a big adrenaline rush when you catch someone trying to invade your privacy, your personal space," says Whaley.

Whaley's truck was locked, but someone did go through his neighbor's vehicle that morning. He has since given the video to police. He now has other neighbors inquiring about his surveillance system.

The Yukon Police department says because car break-ins are so prevalent, they've seen an increase in the number of people setting up surveillance cameras at their home.

"It's definitely on the upswing," says Lt. Ron Mathews of Yukon Police Department.

Police want to remind residents that thieves rarely will bust out a window to get into your car. Instead they go for the unlocked cars first.
