DRAPER, Utah - The Bellevue neighborhood of Draper has felt besieged by a string of burglaries, but a couple of home surveillance systems may provide the tools to end the crime spree.

Matt Wilkonson's home security system caught two young men in white hoodies walking around his back deck and hot tub area at 4:16 Wednesday morning.

At one point, one of the men looks at the camera...providing a pretty clear look at his face.

Another neighbor down the street caught what appears to be the suspects' vehicle casing the street, passing twice before the two men are seen on foot between 4 and 4:30 AM.

Wilkonson wasn't burglarized that night, though his case for trespassing may be clear.

His neighbor, Mike Baird, was burglarized likely just after the video was taken.

"This is where my family is this is where my kids are. You feel violated," Baird said.

Wilkonson's other neighbor, Mark Torbett, has been burglarized three times this year.

Torbett said, "We're going to put a stop to it and we're not going to have this any longer."

The neighbors have decided to form a neighborhood watch, and a community Facebook page has attracted more than 80 members in less than two days.

If you know who the suspects in the video are, call police at 801-840-4000.
