No neighborhood or part of town is immune to burglaries these days. Even in the quiet gated neighborhood of Whispering Hollow.

"It can happen anywhere, I was gone less than 30 minutes," said the homeowner.

This victim said on June18th in the middle of the day his neighbors saw two suspicious women knock on his door then go around to the back yard.

Within minutes they'd popped the lock to the backdoor, then grabbed thousands of dollars worth of jewelry from the home.

"They left like one earring, grabbed what they could or should in a hurry or a hast," said the victim.

Shortly after they were out the back door.

"My neighbor was out with her dog, saw them, they waved to her smiled and exited out. Jumped in the van and took off," said the victim.

One problem, this homeowner feels this burglary could have been stopped.

"A couple of the neighbors noticed something, and they called each other, and the problem I have is that they should have been calling the police," said the victim.

This homeowner doesn't think he was targeted, but he does think these crooks hit the jackpot when they found his house.

Another reason he thought he was targeted, his backyard is densely surrounded by landscaping.

Often burglars target back yards that are private and secluded, because they can use the cover to get in and out without being seen.

This homeowner is speaking out to prevent other break-ins.

"It's stressful and I don't want anyone else to go through it," he said.
