Video shows thief robbing Regina home under construction
Builder installed camera after $4,000 worth of tools stolen from house
A Regina homebuilder says thieves are targeting houses under construction.
Dan Banesh set up a camera inside the home he's building and caught a man on video stealing tools on Wednesday evening.
Banesh decided to install the security equipment because last month someone pilfered $4,000 worth of drywall tools from the house.
He said this can especially hurt small businesses and contractors that buy a set of tools in the hopes of making a profit.
"If it gets stolen when it's brand new, they don't get to make their money back from it and that's really hard for them."
Banesh pulled up to the house just as the thieves were driving away and did not get a licence plate number.
But he has posted stills from the security camera footage on the Facebook page for his House Trade Built bartering project.
More than 2,000 people have since shared the post.
"It's not about the person. It's not about what was stolen. It's just about the activity in general. It really has to stop," Banesh said.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Regina police.
