A young Dallas mother suspicious of activity in her apartment installed a camera, and over the weekend, her fears came true.
That camera caught a nighttime intruder in her bedroom stealing as she slept at the Hampton Terrace apartments, where she’s lived nearly three years.

The victim asked that FOX 4 not use her real name due to concerns that the intruder may try to look her up, so we call her Alice.
“I started noticing things coming up, missing a little bit before of Christmas last year,” said Alice.
One of the things that went missing was money from her 5-year-old daughter’s piggy bank.
“The only thing I could think of was someone was coming with a key and entering into my home and taking things,” said Alice.
