A man was caught on camera breaking in to multiple homes in the River Place complex in Cape Coral. The homeowners saw the break-in take place on their security system. The man who is working to catch the person responsible is the landscaper for the property. 

“One of my friends has a condo there and he noticed some videos that he has of his unit of somebody inside the unit”, he told Four in Your Corner. 

The landscaper who asked to simply be identified as Jeff, has worked on the property for over ten years and says he's gotten to know the seasonal visitors who stay there very well. He got a call from the housekeeper when the crime happened. He's since been working on getting everything back in order for his friends. 

“They weren't too happy about it because they were miles away in Switzerland and they couldn't do anything about it", he said.

Jeff has since been doing everything he can to help, including calling the police and looking for any potential damage done to the property. It was while doing this that Jeff made another discovery. 

“I called the locksmith to come out and change the locks and he said two other units had been picked in to too.”

Security footage from around the property shows the culprit walking toward multiple condominium units. Jeff has been posting this footage to the Facebook pages around the area, in hopes of catching the man in the videos. 

“I got videos of him and I will watch out for him.”

Jeff tells Four in Your Corner the person responsible has not been caught and he's urging anyone with any information to contact the Cape Coral Police Department.
