Man caught on video ransacking family's Longwood home

LONGWOOD, Fla. – A homeowner hopes someone will recognize the man who kicked in her door and ransacked her home.

Monica Emmons' surveillance cameras capture the burglar after he broke into the home on Miami Springs Drive in Seminole County.

Deputies said he was likely after guns, cash and jewelry, but walked away with nothing.

While break-ins aren't uncommon, the victim says she didn't think it would happen to her.

"You shouldn't have to want to carry a gun with you, or mace. You know if I want to carry mace, I want it to be for the bears," Emmons said.

Contact Seminole County Sheriff's Office if you have information on the burglary.
