Home video captures Virginia Highland prowler

- An Atlanta resident's home surveillance system captured a clear image of a prowler. It was so good, police said they were able to quickly identify the man who is nearly 60 years old. His name is Larry Burke.

Police said their suspect can be seen initially knocking on a door. When no one answers, the man starts to push the door. It appears he soon realizes there is a camera at the front and he stares at it.

With the clock ticking, he tries harder for a few seconds and then gives up.

It all took place last Saturday on St. Charles Place in Virginia-Highland. In the same general area, another resident's home captures a man go up to the front of the property and snatch a box. Captain Neil Klotzer said that was also Burke.

The captain predicts it will only be a matter of time before they lock up Burke again. He has an Atlanta rap sheet that goes back to 2008.
