Man Allegedly Stealing Doorbell Cameras Caught on Camera

ID #19-90

Fresno, CA — Fresno County Sheriff’s detectives are looking for a crook targeting Ring doorbell cameras in Northwest Fresno.

The man stole one Ring camera and tried to steal three more, during a four-hour window Wednesday morning — and each of those caught him in the act.

The videos show him wearing a red baseball hat and carrying a bright red backpack.

He walks up to each home and uses a tool to jostle the camera from its base.

Man tries to steal RING doorbell cameras in Northwest Fresno

“This guy is trying to steal something that records his face. You can’t ask for much more than that,” says Tony Botti, Fresno County Sheriff’s Spokesman.

He says the doorbell cameras have been great for investigations.

“They are very clear, they are easy to share with a simple link, the file’s not very large, and they’re even audible. You can get audio of the actual crime. That’s pretty cool,” Botti says.

Savannah Bigley, Public Relations Coordinator for Ring, tells FOX26 news, “The devices are designed with tamper-proof screws which makes them difficult to remove without the proper tools.”

If a thief does manage to remove a Ring device, homeowners can send a copy of the police report to [email protected] and Ring will replace the device free of charge.

“Ring has the ability to disable stolen devices so that they cannot be set up with another account,” Bigley says.
