Oklahoma City Police are looking for the burglars, and Wednesday night, surveillance cameras from one of the victims are giving us a look at the criminals.

From the footage, you can see the truck slip into neutral and reverse, scaring the crooks so badly that one guy hit the ground. 

"I didn't see my truck here. I look around and see my truck in the middle of the street," said Miguel Mandujano.

The truck belongs to Mandujano and he found it in the middle of his street near SW 39th St. and Penn. He said the thieves did some damage when they broke into the vehicle on Halloween. Thanks to his neighbor's infrared security cameras, we're getting a good look at the burglars.

"I've had cameras up in operation for about five years now," Stan Steele said.

Steele was searching his cameras for a good angle and found out the thieves came back for his car a few nights later.

"They're up here in my property, they're in car, they're going through my things," Steele explained.

The guys in the video were wearing dark-colored hoodies, although the clothes appeared white due to the night-vision. They were also both wearing backpacks. The video shows them jiggling car door handles all along the street.

"I'm just not going to stand for it," Steele said. "I've worked hard for what I have and I don't want someone to come take it away from me."

If you recognize the guys in the surveillance video, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300.
