On the chance  the police are tracking this guy, maybe lockinload is the first to get him on video. Obviously, with Ring doorbells becoming common, having video is not as novel or juicy as it once was to police, but having actual evidence to give the DA to work with, so if they actually do catch him, he can be prosecuted more easily, that can still get their attention.

And having a laid back attitude while being helpful as possible, and conveying to the police through what you say, and how you say it, that your expectations are low, "you know how it works", and are reporting the incident "just in case" etc. can go a very long way.

You have to maximize your status as a non-drunk, non-high,  non low-life who's full of lies and excuses that they've heard a million times before. And as someone who's in the nominal law-abiding people/victim category, you aren't belligerent or in "I pay your salary!"-mode.

In the 22 years at my current residence, I've at least had the satisfaction of seeing people cuffed-n-stuffed for relatively minor things, in terms of what the police otherwise deal with by using this approach.

I'm not advocating that anyone actually tastes the boot polish. I'm just suggesting that a strategic sniff of it might get you some retribution on the criminal.

It would take 10 minutes and could potentially save you a lot of time on the back end.

Or, it could be his third strike and enough to put him away long enough to give the neighbors a reprieve on their shit getting stolen for awhile.

It's all a mute point as I am moving in 2 months.  That shed does not have much left in it and after today it won't have anything of value in it.  
Where we are moving, the likely hood of an event like this is pretty slim.  5 miles from a town or stop light.

Not sure on Lorex but usually you can put in a USB key and record to that.

On my HIKvision I can also do it from my smartphone.

How much does it take for people to realize this is what should be done?

"He only took an air rifle and a sleeve but left the good stuff because he got spooked." By your GF who was only feet away.
Are you waiting for her, you, or someone you care about to get hurt or killed?

You're not going after him because your here talking about it and creating a paper trail here.

Call the cops and create that paper trail incase he shows back up.

By the way, how has your GF reacted to the video?

Has it occurred to you to make a police report and have them lift prints off the skateboard? He did steal a gun after all, even if it was only a pellet gun.

I live in a part of my state where until 1-2 years ago, there was next to zero crime. Then everyone started moving here from all of the shit places in CA and magically, we ended up with people noticing shit missing and things stolen out of cars. That slowly progressed to hearing about people coming home to people in their house, people trying to break in....and we had our first drive by shooting a few months ago.

I've been thinking of how I can probably catch those assholes who walk around the nicer neighborhoods at 3am and lift door handles, steal shit out of cars and garages. Not sure on the legality, but having a huge garage with multiple doors on it would make for easy bait by leaving one of them open at night as some people do on accident.

I'd tie a rope to the emergency release cable for it, and sit on the far end of the garage in total darkness with my PVS31 on and my carbine. You couldn't see me unless you were 5 feet infront of me.

They'd wander in, looking around at all this wonderful free shit to steal and then the garage door would magically drop down and make the garage pitch black. I can only imagine the level of pissing yourself that would give someone, followed by a voice from the corner of the garage telling you to get the fuck down while a red laser turns on.

I have a camera inside the garage to record it all as proof they actually did come in. Thinking of this again, I need to see what the state law is on this lol
