Attempted break-ins, vandalism, theft caught on Lindenwald couple's security cameras


A Lindenwald couple wants the crime in their area to stop after several incidents, including vandalism and theft, were captured on their home security system.

Over the past few months, Yvonne Groudle said that they have spotted people attempting to break into cars and stealing on their surveillance footage.

The latest incidents involve "eggings." Groudle said that on at least two occasions, two young boys threw eggs at her home off of Dixie Highway, and it was caught on camera.

"Trying to put my head around it, why you would want to damage someone else's property, why?" Groudle said.

Hamilton Police said that they have taken several reports of eggings in recent days. In two of the cases, people reported that the suspects were aiming for moving cars. 

Groudle said that she is concerned that an egg hitting a car could distract the driver.  

"You could crash. You could hit somebody on the sidewalk, hit a pole, kill yourself," Groudle said.

Groudle said that the first time they targeted her house, they aimed for the window where her mother-in-law was sitting. Had they thrown only a little harder, Groudle believes "she would have been hurt."

On top of the security cameras, Groudle now has a motion detector in place at her home in hopes of keeping the vandals and burglars away.

However, just in case that is not enough, Groudle has a clear message for the criminals lurking around her property: stop it, or you can expect to see your face on camera.

Hamilton Police are investigating the crimes. Police said that the eggings in particular could lead to a criminal damaging charge.

If you have any information, you're asked to report it.
