Police: 3 caught on camera in Bronx home invasion

Police are searching for three men after a home invasion was caught on camera in the Bronx.



The incident happened on June 2 at around 1 a.m.



Police won't release the exact location to protect the identity of the victim, but say it occurred inside of a residential building around Grand Concourse and East 198th Street.



According to police, the men used a ground level apartment window to gain access inside.



Police say video shows one of the men checking to see if the window is unlocked. A second man then hops on the edge of the window and up on top of the air conditioner.



He eventually pulls out what appears to be a smart phone, and uses the light on it to get a better look, while the other two suspects remained in the courtyard as lookouts.



Police say the one man was able to gain entry to the 56-year-old victim's home, and stole $400.
