Houston burglary suspect seen watching over sleeping baby in video

Authorities in Texas are searching for a burglary suspect seen on a home surveillance video earlier this month staring at a sleeping infant in the child’s room.

"He's really gutsy," Thinh Le, the homeowner, told KTRK. "I was infuriated when I saw him in my baby's room."

Authorities  describes the burglar as a Hispanic male between the ages of 16 and 18 years old who has a tattoo behind his right ear, possibly with Asian characters. The incident occurred on April 5.

The suspect made off with a laptop, briefcase, wallet and $60 in cash, Harris County Deputy Thomas Gilliland said. He left ID cards and credit cards behind and the laptop and briefcase were later recovered in a neighbor's yard.

Gilliland said he is optimistic that the suspect will be caught because they have the video. He called the incident disturbing.
