LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Beechmont neighborhood is dealing with a rise in daytime crime. Thieves are breaking into houses while homeowners are at work.

"This isn't their first time. They're very calm, not in a hurry, they go inside and spend 20 minutes in the house - all while a neighbor across the street is working in his yard," said Louisville Metro Police Detective Kevin Peak.

The brazen burglars were caught on camera during a break-in July 28. Surveillance shows two people inside a dark green late 90s Chevrolet Blaze or GMC Jimmy. The SUV's windows are tinted and there aren't rims or hubcaps on the tires.

"We know it was used in a burglary. It pulled into a driveway, a person exits the vehicle, goes up, knocks on the door, comes back around and goes to the backyard. They're likely entering the house through a back or side door," Peak said.

Police say the thieves are after electronics and jewelry.

Anyone with information related to the burglaries is asked to call the LMPD's anonymous tip line at (502) 574-LMPD
