Police: Man stealing from homes while residents still inside

NEW BRIGHTON, Pa. — Police are looking for a man who is stealing from houses in New Brighton while people are still home.

Channel 11 has learned of at least two cases and there could be more.

"I'm pissed," Lisa Ferguson said, as she and her husband Matthew watched their home surveillance video from Saturday night.

Their outside security cameras captured hours of footage of a man walking around their yard, up to their side door, even sitting on the steps, while more than 30 people were partying Halloween style inside and in the back yard, never noticing him.

"He was there for three hours," Matthew Ferguson said.


The Fergusons have cameras all over the outside of their house. One angle shows the suspect walk right through the front door.

The Fergusons are missing major amounts of money. They say he went through their house, the safe and went upstairs to the bedrooms while Lisa was sleeping.

Channel 11 checked in with New Brighton police, who say the suspect has hit other homes over the past couple of weeks. The Fergusons are floored by his brazenness.

"If he comes back, he's in for it," Lisa Ferguson said.

Police said homes on 10th Street have been among those targeted.

Anyone with information is asked to call the New Brighton Area Police Department at 724-846-2270.
