ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The dogs don’t seem to mind the men coming in through the window.

Security cameras captured this crystal-clear view of a break-in this Wednesday morning at a home in the 3000 block of Shenandoah in south St. Louis. The video was posted to the Compton Heights “Next Door” neighborhood page.

Police say that they received a call about the break-in at around 11:30am. The caller, who was not at the home, said there was live video surveillance of the burglary. He said he could see the doors open.

The video shows two men breaking into the home.  They enter through the video and have a look around the place.  There are two dogs who witness the break-in.  They follow the two men around as they walk into several rooms.  An alarm sounds when one of the men walks through a door.  The two men then make their escape.  One man jumps back through the window.  The other man unlocks the back door and leaves the premises.

Investigators are still working on this case and a police report is not complete. Police do not have any information on if anything was taken from the home.

After seeing that video neighbors in the Compton Heights area think those are the same persons  that broke into a house along South Grand Tuesday.

A neighbor on South Grand snapped a picture of two men they saw looking into windows.

Many neighbors think the two men in the picture look just like the two men caught on surveillance.

Police are looking for the suspects. Please call CrimeStoppers if you have any information at 1-866-371-TIPS (8477) or visit:

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
