Police said the accused also stole a Digital Video Recorder to destroy evidence.

The accused would pretend to sell items in the area and recce empty houses. “They would look at houses with no lights switched on, and ring the door bell multiple times to observe if someone came out — just to ensure no one was inside before breaking into it,” a senior police officer said.
