HARLINGEN, Texas (KVEO) —A Harlingen resident is looking for justice after being victim of a burglary and noticing an increase in crime in his neighborhood.
“It’s been happening frequently where they come and check the vehicles and check the trucks, cars to make sure if they’re locked or not,” said Encarnación Perez, a resident in the Wildwood neighborhood.
Perez said that this is not the first time it happens. He added that about a year and a half ago someone took a rock and smashed car windows along his street, including his son’s.
He sent KVEO the surveillance video showing someone walk up to his truck, and according to Perez, stole a garage door opener, Air pods, and $100.

“They used someone’s landscaping rock to break the windows all along the side of the street causing a lot of damage to vehicles,” said Perez.
Though Perez filed a police report on the incident, he said he just wants whoever is doing it to stop.
“You know we work hard to maintain what we have and what we earn, and for some person to come and do something like that it really … annoys me,” Perez said.
