Surveillance video shows the results of an attempted burglary or home invasion at the residence of a veteran of the 82nd Airborne — Andrew Myers.
The offender entered the homeowners house earlier this week in the middle of the night — actually on Veteran’s Day.
The veteran’s neighbor saw the offender and when they checked the security cameras, they saw the offender. He broke into the basement and remained there overnight. He got away with burglary once, but the veteran installed a security device to alert him to movement in the fence line of his property.
