DES PERES, MO - Lock your car doors and secure your items.
That is the warning Wednesday morning from the Des Peres Police Department.

Video shows a brazen thief caught in the act on a home security camera.  Police say this man cased cars in the Diamond Ridge subdivision off Des Peres Road early Tuesday morning.
He then found a garage door opener inside an unlocked vehicle, used it to open the garage, and took off after the home alarm sounded.
