    Gary Wilkerson Jr. who runs the nonprofit When We Love in Fort Worth, said surveillance cameras showed two men and a woman taking computers, television sets and other electronics over a three-hour period.

    "They were very methodical," Wilkerson told WFAA.

    Writing on Facebook, Wilkerson said he believed one of the thieves was a homeless man he allowed to stay at the facility because of the cold weather in north Texas, the Dallas Morning News reported.
