KILLEEN — The man caught on camera Wednesday night burglarizing a home in Killeen has still not been caught.

Max Bledsoe was driving home from work when he began to repeatedly receive notifications of movement taking place inside his living room. He explained that he figured it was his 12-year-old son, who was home at the time.

Upon arriving home and walking through his front door he said something felt off.

The incident happened just before 10:30 p.m.

"I go into the bedroom and see my window wide open with my air conditioner pushed through, that's when I realized stuff was not right," Bledsoe said.

He then called Killeen police after discovering missing belongings throughout the house, including his indoor security camera.

It was after he called police that he realized a total of $1,000 of items were missing.

Of the items taken was a Nintendo Switch taken from inside the room where his son was sleeping under the covers.

Also taken was Bledsoe's iPad, which after being taken was powered on approximately a mile away from his home.

If you recognize this man please call Killeen Police Department at 254-501-8800.
