Police want residents in Bellaire to be aware of the increase in car break-ins.
Bellaire police said in the early morning hours of July 31, a home security system captured video of two suspects breaking into cars parked in the driveway of a home.
The video clearly showed one of the suspects carrying a gun in his hand.
Authorities said they were alarmed to see the suspect so recklessly display the gun during the crime.
Police said they believe the suspect would have used the gun if he had been confronted by the homeowner.
