ONLY ON 8: Man cuts window seal to break into locked car

LAS VEGAS (KLAS-TV) – It’s a new way criminals are getting into locked cars.

Michael Sweeney’s Ring security camera captured a man outside of his home near Ann Road. and North 5th St. breaking into his car.

The man can be seen cutting the window seal, removing the glass in one piece, and unlocking the door. He then climbs into the back of the truck and closes the door behind him.

“It seems so simple. The way he did it. When I watched it, he was in the truck I think than less than a minute,” said Sweeney.

The suspect also tried to steal the car, but he was unsuccessful.

“He didn’t try a door handle or anything. He went right to cutting the gasket around the window and pulling it out,” said Sweeney. “He was just able to reach his hand inside, pull the button up that we push down all the time to lock our vehicles and that was it.”
