On Saturday, September 24, three robbers broke into the Rolling Hills Estates home and stole a safe, among other important items. The robbery occurred while the owner, a woman in her 70s, was away. The thieves, each wearing a mask and gloves, were caught on film from home surveillance cameras attempting to carry a safe weighing about 500 pounds. As Caitlynn Martin, the owner’s daughter, points out, the three grab an important cold gold collection worth hundreds of dollars, along with jewelry, a television and a decorative rooster.
In the security footage, two out of three men can be seen struggling with a giant safe that was loaded into a waiting car from their home at the Rolling Hills Estate. A third man involved in the robbery is believed to be a fugitive driver. The vehicle used in the robbery was also captured on surveillance video, and the victim’s family is believed to be a black Hyundai Santa Nikpe SUV. Police have not yet made an arrest in connection with the Rolling Hills Estates home robbery. Anyone with data related to the Rolling Hills theft should contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Video shows thieves stealing safely from home in Rolling Hills Estates.
Last weekend, surveillance footage showed a thief stealing a safe from a house in Rolling Hills Estates. While the owner was away, two thieves approached through a sliding lawn door. After scouring the house, the two can be seen carrying a huge safe. The safe weighs about 500 pounds, according to Caitlynn Martin, the landlord’s daughter. Thieves also stole necessities, such as gold coin collections and trinkets.
The family believes that the car found in the video is a Hyundai Santanicfe SUV, and that three people were involved in the robbery. The two thieves were masks and gloves. They believe that the third individual may have been the fugitive driver. As the landlord’s daughter said, the family is greatly shaken by this incident. The 70-year-old homeowner’s daughter, who spent her childhood at her Rolling Hills home, said her experience utterly terrified her.
Caitlynn Martin also revealed that her mother has done everything she can think of to ensure the safety of her home against her absence. She told KTLA: She thought she had done what seemed most appropriate. She had a camera. She locked all the doorways. She put pretty high-tech locks on every doorway, [you] Feel that you truly did everything right, but you weren’t. No arrests at this time. Families want to get data about individuals in the video.
