The event happened on April 5, when a surveillance video inside the Houston home of Thinh Le captures a young man strolling through their house in the dark, looking over everything while holding a flashlight so he could see.

The police were called after Le's neighbor contacted Le and told him he found his laptop computer and a briefcase in his yard. Lee said $60 was gone from his wallet, reports Click to Houston.

From the looks of the video, it seems as though the intruder is very comfortable and casual as though he had been in the home before or he has done this many times before in other homes.

Although there is no explanation how the man got inside Le's home, it seemed as though he was aware of the cameras stated Le.

"He looked up at some of the cameras and saw and made some statement that I'm here and don't care," Le told ABC 13 Eyewitness news.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office Safe Home Task Force is seeking the public's help to identify the person who burglarized the home.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, between the ages of 16 to 18. He was wearing a New Era baseball cap with a San Antonio Spurs logo on the brim and the video spotted a tattoo behind his right ear, possibly of Asian characters.

If you know who this is, please call the Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS.
