“I am not inspiring people to confront this person by any means, they should call the police and report this guy,” Stearns said. “Nothing of value was taken from my car, but I don’t have the contact information for a lot of people in the area and there isn’t a special group for this neighbourhood. So I posted it on Facebook hoping the neighbours would see it.”

Stearns car doors were not locked, however he says in the video the thief looks closely at his car that was and is grateful nothing valuable was in there.

The robbery happened at 3 a.m. on Wednesday morning. Stearns has reported the incident to the police.
