Home surveillance video shows Ghent smash and grab

Big-screen TV theft caught on camera

NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- A Ghent homeowner hopes his surveillance video helps identify a man who he says broke into his home and stole a 65-inch TV and a laptop.

“Thankfully we got nice video of the gentleman here hopping a fence and doing a little dance with my TV,” says Chuck Lane.

Lane shared the video of the alleged burglary with 13News Now. He lives on Harrington Avenue in the Ghent area of Norfolk.

"Someone broke in shortly after we left for work and stole our TV and my laptop, they shattered the sliding glass door," Lane said in a message. 

He says the break-in happened sometime around 9 a.m. on Thursday.

"Apparently someone saw him carrying our TV and called the police, who left us a note," Lane said. 

Officer Jo Ann Hughes with the Norfolk Police Department says a burglary detective is looking into the case. 

Anyone with more information is asked to call the Crimeline at 1-888-LOCK-YOU-UP.
