Neighbors Catch Suspected Burglars Using Nextdoor


When one neighborhood outside of San Antonio began experiencing a rash of break-ins and burglaries, neighbors were on edge. It wasn’t until one neighbor captured footage of a man casing a car wearing a distinctive backpack that there was a break in the case.

The HOA turned to Nextdoor, and so did their residents to talk about the trend of break-ins. One neighbor posted footage and stills of the suspect casing the cars on Nextdoor and also shared it with his local Sheriff’s Office. Neighbors were on high alert and determined to put an end to the burglaries.

By using the power of technology and connecting with neighbors, just hours later at least three suspects were arrested.

As reported by CBS San Antonio and NBC San Antonio.
